Let’s Get Active NC Video
Inactivity and long periods of sitting is detrimental to your health. Some of the health risks of too much sitting include: worse mental health and mental fatigue; higher risk of chronic diseases such as obesity, heart disease, cancer and diabetes; higher risk of disability, weak muscles, and chiropractic problems (back, shoulder, neck pain); higher risk of varicose veins and blood clots; and shorter life expectancy. The Let’s Get Active NC Video is a short and fun PowerPoint presentation that can be used during meetings and conferences to provide a physical activity break and re-focus your audience. The video was created as part of the Plan4Health Initiative and with funding from the American Planning Association.
