Research shows sitting for too long is actually killing you! Okay, maybe not. But, it does show sitting for more than 60 minutes actually erases all of the hard work you put into your morning or lunchtime exercise routine. We’ve developed this handy flier/poster for use to use at your workplace to encourage employees to move for 3 minutes after sitting for 60 minutes. It’s a simple idea that really packs a punch.
You’ll remember, we designed a new learning opportunity for businesses building wellness programs called Wellness Council of Iowa (WCI) Wellness Huddle. And, people have really loved the experience.
What is a WCI Wellness Huddle?
A WCI Wellness Huddle event is part networking, part learning, and part mentoring, and more. Every Wellness Huddle event has a theme that small group work sessions (we call Huddles) are centered around. >>Learn more about Wellness Huddles here.
Our next Wellness Huddles are:
- May 20, 2014 – Dubuque – Wellness Program Structure/Planning
- June 19, 2014 – Burlington – Prevention as a Wellness Strategy
- November 5, 2014 – Cedar Rapids – Wellness Program Structure/Planning

There are many fantastic perks to being a member of the Wellness Council of Iowa/WELCOA. Your membership dues provides incentive campaigns, wellness bulletins, case studies, interviews, social networking, connection and more. Perhaps one of the most valuable items is the annual webinar series.
Over the course of the year, 11 webinars (nearly one per month) will be conducted by Nationally-recognized industry leaders on a variety of subjects important to wellness professionals. They’re easy to participate in and well-worth your time. New this year are beginner, or intermediate/expert level Well Workplace certifications.
