Time For A Stretch Break

Time for a stretch break? Always!

You probably know this already, but sitting still for prolonged amounts of time is really bad for you! Prolonged sitting is linked to all manner of ‘mechanical’ conditions; sore neck, back, shoulder pain, swollen ankles, heel pain…the list is very long so taking a stretch break regularly throughout the day is a very good idea.

Sitting still whilst you work is also really bad for your mood and mental wellbeing – just as our bodies are designed to move, our minds are designed to control our movements.

But it doesn’t take much to off-set the harm of prolonged sitting. Taking a stretch break every 30 minutes is all you need to do to boost your productivity and wellbeing – a good stretch or some high intensity movements can feel like the human equivalent to re-booting your computer

Movement is Medicine

We built Moments2Move to ‘nudge’ you to take a stretch break throughout the day and a simple way to track your progress to a target of 660 points (11 minutes of movement) a day!


– Feel better
– Finish the day with more, not less energy!
– Burn calories whilst you work
– Reduce the chances of injuries and pain
– Improve your concentration and mood
– Take part in Challenges with your friends and colleagues

There’s two ways to use Moments2Move

Little, but often

Turn on the notifications (the little red bell in the bottom right) and it’ll nudge you every 30 minutes with a functional movement to do. Simply ‘favourite’ the moves you want to do from one of the Collections. There’s a collection for everyone from moves that you can do sitting down and take just a few seconds each, to breathing exercises, eye health or more strenuous moves like HiiT or planks. Of why not give yourself a few minutes a few times a day a ‘floss like a boss’ – it’s great exercise and makes you feel fantastic!

When you’ve done your move, claim the Gems towards your daily target and see how you compare on the leaderboard.

Join a Challenge

Challenges are fun! They last 2-21 days, and you can do them on your own or with friends and colleagues. Unlike moves from one of the Collections that take just a few seconds, Challenges take more time, but the payback is probably higher.
You could take a Yoga Challenge, join a lunchtime walking club (or take your phone with you and have a meeting), do some HiiT or, just for fun, do a dance Challenge.
Just like with Moves, claim your Gems when you’ve finished towards your daily goal of 660 gems

What Our Users Say

“I did the challenge with some work friends and it was such fun. It’s shocking how little we move during the day and we all felt better”

“I had a really sore back and I knew it was from sitting still too long so I really focussed on some strength moves. I loved the daily yoga!”

“I knew I was sitting too much, so it was a great challenge and I learnt a lot and felt really better. Some of those stretches feel soooo good”

“The Challenge was great. I loved the ‘ding’ when I reached my goal and the team I worked with really enjoyed the friendly competition.”

“I loved the move more challenge. I had the alerts on and wow, those 30 minutes seem to come so fast! Shows how easy it is to hardly move.”

About Moments2Move

Our mission is simple: to improve people’s health by getting them moving, one nudge at a time.

Sitting is really bad for us. As well as aches and pains, prolonged sitting is linked to a huge range of chronic health conditions. If you have a desk-based job, you could be spending 12 hours a day sitting down.

The NHS has loads of research on this subject, as does the HSE and if you need more information, this is a great video to watch from the Mayo Clinic.

But, you can minimize the risk of harm by simply moving more; easy, quick, unobtrusive, but regular movements during your working day.
