Activating a Move-Friendly world
Join VMove, a novel, free physical activity initiative by a scientist and public health professional, Dr. Kaumudi Joshipura, who introduced it during a TEDx talk. VMove was initiated to inspire, empower and enable people to engage in physical activity anytime; anywhere without resources to fill a gap between research and translation into practice. VMove is innovative and has important health benefits. See this post about VMove by Harvard University to get an overview.
Exercise cannot compensate for a sedentary lifestyle, so current physical activity guidelines recommend taking activity breaks from sitting, and increasing movement throughout the day, in addition to exercise. However, many of us spend long hours sitting, and it is challenging to take activity breaks and move throughout the day, as it often requires us to move in front of others outside the current norms. VMove helps create a move-friendly world, and facilitates individual and group movement, wherever and whenever possible by inspiring creative movement, and providing a unifying way to help change the norms globally. VMove also brings play and fun into routine work, and other settings. VMove inspires people to use every opportunity to be active, and creatively move while doing other things, thus helping people meet all the physical activity recommendations including exercise as well as breaking sedentary time.
It is easy to incorporate VMove into your life, and to lead others, regardless of your current activity level.
