If you think recess is just for kiddos, think again. A new National Physical Activity Plan has been released and it’s goal is to promote physical activity in all areas of life–health care, business, neighborhoods, etc.–and make exercise a normal part of life for everyone. By “exercise,” they’re not talking about long hours at the gym getting sweaty, but rather small doable chunks of activity to make all of us less sedentary.
One of the group’s ideas? Ten-minute recess breaks over the course of a work day, like this company is doing. Talk about being better than a coffee or smoke break!
