Our bodies have evolved to help us move. For thousands of years, movement has played an essential role in our evolution bringing with it a wide range of physical and mental health benefits. Movement increases blood circulation and the release of proteins and hormones that boost wellbeing and reduce tension. As office workers often work in sedentary sitting positions, encouraging movement brings numerous benefits for wellbeing and productivity. Movement creates energy - a buzz people feel the moment they enter your workspace. As technology continues to change the way we work, flexible workspaces have the added benefit of increased interactions and chance encounters that spark innovation!
