Don’t Just Sit There!

By American Diabetes Association

Our incoming CEO, Kevin L. Hagan, is leading by example!

A lot can happen in 90 minutes. You can watch three episodes of your favorite sitcom (we just found this show on Hulu called “Seinfeld,” which seems pretty great). You could get caught up on the news of the day and your social media feeds, with plenty of time dedicated to designing your dream home via Pinterest. You could fit in a couple of quarters, innings or periods of your favorite sporting event. Or, you could get a decent amount of work done at the office—if you’re into that sort of thing.

What do these activities have in common? Sitting. A lot. It all adds up. And that’s just not good for you.

However you decide to spend your time, you should make a habit of getting up every 90 minutes. In fact, research shows that changing our sedentary habits is one of the most effective ways of preventing type 2 diabetes.

Today, May 6, marks the American Diabetes Association’s inaugural National “Get Fit Don’t Sit” Day. We want to get you up and moving, as prolonged sitting for hours and hours every day creates serious health risks.

And we’re not just here to tell you, but also to show you how! Check out this short series of videos that demonstrate fun, easy ways to make your work day healthier, whether you’re stuck at your desk or waiting for that document at the printer:

We’ll be sharing pictures, tips and videos throughout the day, so make sure you’re tuned into our social media channels for the latest and greatest. And we want to see how YOU and your company are celebrating this day and improving your health. If you haven’t already, share your pictures using the hashtag #GetFitDontSit on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. (Bonus points if you convinced your CEO to don sneakers for a lap around the building!)
