  • This information is from www.getbritanstanding.org . In recent years a variety of major international research has produced compelling evidence that sitting for more than 4 hours each day leads to: •Enzymes responsible for burning harmful blood fats shutting down •Reduced calorie burning (Metabolic rate) •Disrupted blood sugar levels •Increased insulin and blood pressure levels •Leg muscles switch off We recommend you calculate the hours you spend sitting on an average "working day". Make sure you include your sitting time when at work, commuting and at home. Take frequent breaks from sitting. Stand while you are talking on the phone, have walking meetings, walk to a collegues desk instead of emailing, stand during meetings.

  • This information is from www.healthyfamiliesbc.ca. Growing up I was fortunate that our family would go camping several times each summer. It was nothing fancy; we’d set-up camp at provincial parks and entertain ourselves with beach activities, berry picking, and some hiking. Sure, we got dirty and got one too many mosquito bites, but the memories of spending time together as a family and having lots of fun were worth it! Packing suggestions: If the whole family is going camping, simple low cost items like a Frisbee™, beach or sports ball can get everyone off their lounge chairs and playing games together. A pail and shovel for playing in the sand and making sandcastles can provide hours of fun. For those heading out with a partner or a group of friends, pack your running shoes for jogs or hikes, and a swim suit for the beach (don’t forget the sunscreen!).
