30 Ways To Move (Created by Participants) Article 16

During the 30 Day Moving Challenge, we placed a lot of emphasis on the importance of moving during the day in addition to our walking and other physical activities.

As everyone lives and works in a somewhat different environment, we encouraged challenge participants to share their moving actions with us during Zoom calls. This process resulted in many great ideas summarised in our “30 Ways To Move” image above with the explanation for each move provided below.
