Peter (PJ) Fulcher-Meredith's curator insight, June 11, 2013 5:56 PM

Oh, my God! I fell off my office chair when I read this infographic. Everyone of us should take on board what it is saying.  We spend to much time sitting (even then, not properly) and not enough time moving. Now I know why there is a move to have office workers stand and use computers.  I have even seen stadning desks that have a treadmill attached! I wrote this standing by the way.

I am standing up while typing this...

Talk about a kick in the (m)ass of my mind.

Screams to me that we need to get our learners out of their chairs...or else.

Forced gym makes kids hate exercise!

Gee...Dodgeball gets a bad wrap...the arguement has some merit....

Tyler Owen's comment, June 6, 2014 10:39 PM
I think that students should not be forced to go to gym class or do exercise, its something you want to do not something you have to do, although exercise is an important part of every students life as it aids with being healthy. Mind set I believe is another problem if you don't believe you can do something people don't do it and some students have that so do not push themselves to the limit.
