Modern society is designed for sitting. Sitting uses far less energy than standing or moving. Modern society is now burning 1000 fewer calories per day than generations before us. Even a two minute walk, or stretch at your desk can help ward off dementia, diabetes, anxiety, DVT, weight gain, back pain, etc. 

This fall, MCPS is encouraging staff to find minutes in their day for movement. And throughout the 10 week challenge, to build on these minutes with the goal of 30 minutes of accumulated activity per day. 

The online Well Aware Fitness Log is available to you 24/7, so log your activity at any time.

Share the Minutes in Motion Flyer with your coworkers. Review the Program Guide for Minutes in Motion rules, prizes, and instructions.
