Active Working Tips – Dress to Impress?

Apr 25, 2017

Continuing our series of ‘Active Working’ blogs this week in the lead up to ‘On Your Feet Britain‘, our tip today is

Wear comfy clothes and footwear 

Research has shown that wearing comfortable clothes can actually help increase activity in the workplace. A stiff suit or high heels doesn’t encourage you to take the stairs or go for a walk at lunchtime!

Depending on your working environment or policy, a uniform or smart clothes may be essential. If so, it’s worth considering taking a change of shoes to encourage you to go for a walk at lunchtime or it may be possible to choose fabrics that are more comfortable, roomy, breathable or have some stretch in them. Think about investing in some great flats or funky chunky heels as a compromise.

Many offices now have a ‘dress down’ Friday – this is a great opportunity to get a bit more activity in the day, when you’re feeling more comfortable in what you’re wearing.
