Healthy Active Breaks in the University community

Lifestyle today is highly sedentary in many walks of life. Sedentary jobs means long working hours in a sitting position, which are a barrier to physical activity. Although physical activity should be recommended as a leisure activity, sedentary behaviour poses serious health problems related to the metabolic syndrome, and increased risk of depression and anxiety. A valid strategy is to include breaks during sedentary periods, which can reduce their harmful effects at the metabolic level.
