Are you ‘Fit 2 Sit’?
Do you feel you have the strength, endurance and flexbility to cope with sitting a lot at a desk?
I refer to this as being ‘Physically Resilient’
… or do you feel tight and tense, perhaps even sore or sluggish, or so tired and struggling to concentrate?
There’s a lot of talk, and rightly so, about workers’ and students’ resilience… or lack thereof.
When we think of a person’s or group of person’s resilience levels, we’re usually referring to their social and emotional ability to adapt and respond to challenges.
It’s typically used in the realm of mental health and social and emotional wellbeing.
I’m passionate about starting a conversation around the physical aspect of wellbeing, including a person, or group of person’s physical resilience!
Health literacy doesn’t just involve the mind and emotions- it’s untimately a matter of mind + body.
So I’m here to put forward the notion of ‘Physical Resilience’ and want to promote it’s importance for us all!
Whether we’re doing paid work or unpaid work – such as students, parents, retirees- we all have to do a certain amount of work…
Whatever your daily tasks include, you are more productive, produce better quality of work, feel more satisfaction and are less likely to feel stiff, sore or even become injured, if we have the physical capacity to do that work well- and to do it again as often as required 🙂
Yes, as an expert in helping both workers and students become more physically resilient, I’ve seen the difference it can make to their lives… I love helping people thrive, not just survive in their work!
I’ve made a quick video about ‘Physical Resilience’- what it means to me and how being more physically resilient might help you and your team/ colleagues/ family members!

Being equipped and empowered with simple strategies, workers and students can
– improve their energy levels
– boost concentration and productivity
– unwind their tight and tense muscles
– improve their posture and confidence
– improve their physical and mental health!
… leading to far greater engagement and ultimate success– for both the individual and their organisation!
This is even more evident when workers and students are engaged in sedentary work.
We’ve all felt how draining, even straining it is to sit in the one spot at a desk, in front of a screen for hours on end!
As we sit still, and our metabolism slows down, we’re literally ‘sitting ducks’ for the onslaught of chronic diseases that often follow.
That’s why there’s so much talk about ‘Sitting Disease’ and its serious side effects!
That’s why I particularly love to help workers be more ‘Fit 2 Sit’ and students more ‘Fit 4 Study’… it really makes a difference to them feeling their best and achieving success at their desk!
I look forward to supporting you and your community in your journey to building greater ‘Physical Resilience’.
