How to Stop Sitting for so Long as a Health Unit Coordinator (Video)



Sitting for a long time is a part of the job of being a Health Unit Coordinator. There are some things that you can do to personally keep your body moving.

Leave the floor. I’ll usually go to the cafeteria daily, to not only grab something to eat but to also to just move my legs. I usually walk down the stairs from the 3rd floor to the basement, and then to the other side of the building. 

Get up and go gossip. I don’t sit on the company’s telephone and gossip with other coworkers. I’ll get up and go where they are and catch up on what’s going on in their life and at work.


Just move. There are times where I will grab my Bluetooth, cell phone, and head outside and walk around the building (or walk to the parking garage) and just listen to music or a podcast. The fresh air and a quick sprint are all that is needed to get the blood pumping.
