Physical Activity and the Workplace

Physical activity helps prevent and slows (or even reverses) the progression of chronic disease.

There are many inexpensive, safe ways to get your exercise, yet many of us don’t get the recommended 150 minutes of moderate activity per week.

Fitting in a few minutes each day while you’re at work can add up—here are a few ideas:

10 for Life

We all want to feel better, be healthier, and live longer. Adding regular exercise to your life is part of that prescription. Our health and wellness teams here at Ohio State created this series of videos to show you how you can make this happen in short, 10 minute segments. That's why we call this video series 10 for Life.

Yes, ten minutes of moderate exercise does count! Don't worry if you aren't physically active now. You can start with as little as 10 minute a day of moderate intensity aerobic activity and build up to the recommended 150 minutes per week. 

Want to know more about the 10 for Life program? Download our brochure-it will give you some great practical examples of exercise that you can do and provide you with more information about physical activity and your health.
