Stand Up!

Media Bakery 

Research shows that sitting too much can be bad for your health. So shake up your school day by spending more time on your feet!

1.  Do your research 

Why is sitting down all day so unhealthy? How does standing in class benefit your body and brain? 

2.  Set a date 

Work as a class to plan a period where you stay on your feet as much as possible. One easy idea: Go outside for a walking discussion! 

3.  Discuss the benefits 

Did standing give you more energy? Keep you focused? Reflect on the payoffs, then brainstorm other ways to work physical activity into your day.


Take a picture of your standing class and send it to Choices! We’ll choose one lucky winner at random to receive a $50 gift card.

No purchase necessary. Entries must be received by 4/15/16 for eligibility. Void where prohibited.
