2017 Active Lunch Challenge - It's time to liven up your lunch!

Make 2017 your year to make a difference for the good of your health, you don't need to run a marathon or climb a mountain… making small changes to your daily routine can make all the difference.

This year we are inviting you to add bite size activities into your working day, ten minutes is all you need to a healthier, happier you!

We know that most of us spend more than 60% of our waking hours at work, and in January/February when the mornings and evenings are filled with darkness – getting out and being active can often be the last thing we want to do!
So… we are urging you to make the most of the lightest and brightest part of your day and to liven up your lunch with bite size activity – every 10 minutes counts!

What
The Active Lunch Challenge is an 8-week national activity logging challenge taking place from the 4th January to the 28th February 2017, where you and your colleagues can log activities and earn activity points.
Workplaces across the country will be taking part in the challenge, logging their points to climb our national leaderboards, with a selection of great prizes on offer.
Bite size activities can be anything that gets your heart rate elevated, makes you feel a little bit warmer and gets your blood pumping! From a brisk walk in a midday mile, to a tussle over table tennis get logging your activity!

Why
The national challenge is a great way to make an active change to your daily routine. Rally the troops and get your workplace moving, enjoy some friendly rivalry competing against local workplaces, and more importantly logging your activity will help make your resolution a reality!
If you are keen to get your whole workplace involved… take a look at our Flexible Lunch Break manifesto, which provides evidence for your employer into the benefits of a healthy and active workplace. There is also the ability to sign up your organisation with our Business Registration feature.
