The On Your Feet Britain Challenge dares you to take James Brown at his word and convert 'sitting time' to 'standing time'.

Follow 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
  • Have standing or walking meetings
  • Eat your lunch away from your desk
  • Walk to your colleague's desk instead of phoning or emailing them
  • Stand at the back of the room during presentations
