It's Time to Get Moving

It is natural for some fatigue to linger into 2021 following an eventful 2020 and as we await the vaccine roll out. However, as we start the new work year (wherever ‘work’ may be for us in the current pandemic), it is a great time to start building new habits to help us remain healthy, energised and motivated throughout 2021.

It is natural for some fatigue to linger into 2021 following an eventful 2020 and as we await the vaccine roll out.

However, as we start the new work year (wherever ‘work’ may be for us in the current pandemic), it is a great time to start building new habits to help us remain healthy, energised and motivated throughout 2021.

We decided to approach one of the amazing athletes from our Female Champions Program for guidance on how to get more active during our work day and how to build positive habits when it comes to our physical wellbeing – which in turn helps us to maintain a positive mindset.

Ange Stannett, whose expertise, apart from being a star defender for the Fremantle Dockers in the AFLW, is as a Health & Fitness coach for her own personal training business. Ange knows a thing or two (or three) about how to work in that extra movement throughout our busy lives. So, we asked Ange to provide her top 3 ‘get active’ tips for the Workplace Law team and our clients. We hope you find them simple to incorporate into your daily life and that they contribute in a small way to you being healthier and happier in 2021!

1.Get your daily step count up!

Can be as simple as going for a walk on your lunch break, taking the stairs instead of taking the lift, getting off your bus a stop earlier.

For those working from home, commute to your home office by taking a detour around the block, picking up your takeaway coffee and supporting your local small businesses.

It’s a win win and gets you into a good rhythm for when you do go back to the office!

2.Set aside 10 mins twice each day, during work hours to get up from your desk and stretch.

Our body is designed to move often.

When we feel stiff, achy and sore, the perfect remedy is to get your body moving more frequently during the day.

Research a simple office mobility routine that can be done at your desk.

3.We will not “find” time to be active, we must MAKE time!

Schedule an appointment for M.E. time.

Aim for consistency instead of perfection. On the days where we least feel like being active, quite often the most difficult part is getting started. Take some of the pressure off by doing smaller amounts of exercise, they will feel like little wins throughout the day and may help you feel motivated to do more, whilst keeping you in the routine.
