Sitting too much is bad for you--One of the most respected researchers in the area of physical activity is urging employers to provide more opportunities to be physically active during the workday. Dr. Steven Blair, an exercise scientist, says that far too many people sit far too much, and "physical activity is probably the biggest public health problem" we have in the U.S. Employers should use their creativity to provide opportunities for physical activity because of the benefits it can bring.

Three ways to stay active -DeskActive's advanced stretch breaks come in three formats--DeskActive Breaks, for a complete 'body and mind' break, Target Breaks for focused care of a problem body area, and Advice Tips for super-quick info on health and well-being.

DeskActive Breaks--DeskActive Breaks contain stretches that keep you moving throughout your workday. Add a couple of health and wellness advice tips on your favorite topics, and you've got a complete rest for mind-and-body. You decide how many stretches you want to do and how often. We recommend four stretches at a time--at least twice a day. That's just 3-5 minutes of your time.

Target Breaks--Target Breaks are specialized stretch breaks for problem areas or specific body parts. You pick the focus area and schedule. Choose from back, chest and core, eyes, fingers and wrists, lower limbs, neck and shoulders.

Advice Tips--Advice Tips are information nuggets that take only seconds to read. Many users like to use time mode to receive these simple health and wellness pop-ups every couple of hours or so. Smart Reminders keep you moving--It's easy to be "DeskActive." When you install DeskActive, it's always open on your computer. So you'll get automatic reminders from Dr. Dale--your animated DeskActive Guide.
