Now Christmas is over and we may have eaten more than we should, many of us will be thinking of getting back into shape.
Did you know the NHS daily recommendation for steps per day is 10,000 steps and a recent article in Workplace Savings and Benefits pointed out that according to an American study:
- Secretaries take 4,300 steps per day
- Lawyers take 5,000 steps per day
- Construction and Factory 9,000 steps per day
Sickness absence in the UK costs £17bn per year.
You could reduce sickness by promoting an active lifestyle and it could be tax efficient too!
