The  U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends that American adults spend 150–300 minutes each week performing moderate physical activity, such as brisk walking, dancing, hiking, practicing yoga, riding a bike, or even scrubbing a bathtub.

Move Arizona is a workplace movement initiative led by Life & Work Connections. The program spans eight weeks each spring. The goal? Encouraging University of Arizona employees to build the healthy habit of meeting those 150 minutes of movement.

Reduce your risk of a number of chronic health conditions, including depression, diabetes, heart disease, and some cancers. And get better sleep! C’mon, the University of Arizona, let’s move!
