Sit still less, work more energetically

A free health promotion program for people with desk-based work (suitable for home office and office work).

Inclusion is important to us. Our program is also suitable for people with movement restrictions and disabilities. We therefore mostly use the term "sitting still" instead of "sitting" to express the motionless persistence in the same body position, which results in reduced energy demand. However, movement is more than just "standing up" and "walking", but also includes, for example, activating movement exercises performed while sitting, as well as physically active locomotion in a wheelchair. In general, our recommendation is to move more in everyday working life according to one's possibilities and to do this in a way that feels good for the individual.

Convince yourself of the positive effects of a workday in light movement. Our program supports you in changing your current routines for agile-dynamic work because movement in the body also brings movement in the mind.

Promote health.

Prolonged, uninterrupted sitting still increases the risk of many chronic diseases. Even by
engaging in light physical activity daily, you can achieve health gains with little effort and no
annoying sweating.

Stay productive.

More movement at work has no negative impact on your productivity. More movement can
even inspire creativity and lead to new, innovative ideas.

Measure successes.

Standardized surveys allow you to see, visualize, and celebrate your team's successes.

Simple and free

The Leicht Bewegt program is free of charge and easy for laypersons to understand. In addition to extensive and multimedia information materials, you receive instructions that support you step by step in the implementation.

Here’s what participants say.

"Leicht bewegt has already had a lot of positive effects for us at the ZI. I see more and more colleagues standing up instead of sitting down in meetings, and I notice that this motivates me and others to stand up as well. A small health-promoting impulse like this can make a big difference in the corporate culture and lead to more movement in everyday (work) life."

(Tina Tober, ZI Mannheim)

"We conducted the "leicht bewegt" program at the DKFZ as part of a scientific study, resulting in two master's theses that showed that the intervention carried out was able to significantly reduce the sitting times of the participants. At the same time, we found that "leicht bewegt" addresses a major need among employees - namely, the need for creative
ways to practically integrate movement into everyday work with small changes, thereby reducing daily sitting time. We are now in the process of making the offer more permanent
in the company so that we can continue to motivate our employees to work more actively and support them in doing so."

(Gabriele Schulze-König, Koordinatorin für Betriebliches Gesundheitsmanagement, Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum)

"Great support through PowerPoints, great write-up of data."
