Lifestyle today is highly sedentary in many walks of life. Sedentary jobs means long working hours in a sitting position, which are a barrier to physical activity. Although physical activity should be recommended as a leisure activity, sedentary behaviour poses serious health problems related to the metabolic syndrome, and increased risk of depression and anxiety. A valid strategy is to include breaks during sedentary periods, which can reduce their harmful effects at the metabolic level.

This course will also be videostreamed for participants not able to participate on campus.
