Recess @ Work: Pass it on!
UK employees: Been sitting too long? Time to get up and move! Try an Recess @ Work. It’s simple – just gather your coworkers and take a quick walk, climb the stairs, do some easy stretches, or make up your own routine. Try it today and pass it along to departments around you.
You can even invite UK Health & Wellness over, and we’ll show you how it’s done. To schedule your Instant Recess, call us at 257-9355 or email.
Check out the Instant Recess® Toolkit for posters, videos, and more.
