Short course focus: Sit Less, Get Active

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Sitting at home day in and day out can be tough, especially if your normal activity involves going to the gym or sports centres. It’s important to keep moving, for your mind as much as your body, but if the hundreds of fitness videos online is proving a bit overwhelming for you, this free MOOC should help you get started. Our academics have been teaching this course since 2016 but there’s still plenty of tips you can use in the current circumstances.

Sit Less, Get Active not only gets you moving, but helps you to set yourself achievable goals to increase your physical activity, whether that’s at home, at your desk or during your allocated time outside. Try encouraging a friend or colleague to take the course with you so you can keep each other motivated and on track, even over video calls.
