Workplace wellness expert Lizzie Williamson is combatting sedentary work culture by inspiring you to incorporate micro moves – small and powerful moments of movement – into your daily routine. 

The current norm of sitting for long hours, immobile and disconnected from our bodies, is deeply ingrained in our work culture. 


But it’s time to challenge the status quo and ask ourselves why we accept it – why do we spend our days confined to chairs, neglecting our physical and mental wellbeing? That’s just part of your job, right? Wrong! It doesn’t have to be that way.


The secret to unlocking a higher level of productivity, focus and fulfilment at work is by embracing something simple yet incredibly powerful: an active workday. 


By integrating more movement into your work routine, you have the power to elevate your wellbeing, increase your cognitive abilities and cause a profound shift in how you approach and engage with your work.


Lizzie Williamson is the founder of Two Minute Moves, a TEDx speaker and a certified personal trainer who has energised thousands of people at events featuring President Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Arianna Huffington and the Dalai Lama. 


In The Active Workday Advantage, Lizzie breaks down how to find a happier, healthier, more productive you over three fun and easy-to-follow sections that include:

  1. Shifting your mindset to reimagine both exercise and your workday, with clever techniques to make your active habits stick.

  2. Science-backed movements including brief stretches, mindful breathing exercises and energising activities to revitalise your work routine.

  3. A roadmap to create an active revolution and transform your workplace into a cornerstone for healthier habits and increased engagement.

Whether you’re an executive seeking to optimise your team’s performance, a manager striving to foster a culture of wellbeing or an employee yearning for a more energised and fulfilling workday, The Active Workday Advantage will give you the practical steps and strategies to reimagine, redesign and revolutionise your professional life.
