On Your Feet Britain
Take part in On Your Feet Britain – the national activity awareness day when 2 MILLION desk-based workers across Britain participate in a variety of fun and simple activities to #SitLess and #MoveMore at work.
Taking place this year on Thursday 29 April 2021, with a NEW LOOK and revamped materials, plus a day of exciting active events to get us all moving.
On Your Feet Britain is a FREE and FUN way to reboot and energize your workplace habits. This year we’re looking forward to seeing how every worker gets active for the #BigWiggle – wherever your desk may be.

- Better health
- Increased motivation
- Improved concentration
- And many, many more wellbeing and performance benefits
"Get up offa that thing"
The On Your Feet Britain challenge encourages you to take James Brown at his word and convert 'sitting time' to 'standing time'. Make some simple changes - it’s easier than you think:
- Stand during phone calls
- Stand and take a break from your computer every 30 minutes
- Use the stairs more
- Arrange standing or walking meetings
- Eat your lunch away from your desk
- Walk to a colleague's desk instead of phoning or emailing them
- Stand at the back of the room during presentations
