Hidde van der Ploeg in newpapers about the sitting behavior at the office

Hidde van der Ploeg (associate professor at the VUmc department of Public & Occupational Health) commented in Nederlands Dagblad and De Volkskrant about sitting behavior at the office. Van der Ploeg: “Working at a seat/stand desk is one of the easiest things you can do to reduce your sitting time. But it is definitely not the only thing. It’s in the small things: standing meetings, walking while you’re on the phone, going for a walk during your break. Taking a walk to a colleague, the printer or the coffee machine for at least two times an hour helps to reduce the negative effects.”
