Step 4: Understand, be aware, do something.

Living sedentary lifestyles, working in an office environment with minimal movement, eating unbalanced meals or erratic meal times. Sounds familiar? Obesity is one of Asia’s biggest concerns, but we can each make a difference starting at the workplace.

Did you know, that over a third of the world’s population resides in Asia, and they are now more obese than ever. These figures are alarming and a huge concern for governments and employers because obesity can lead to preventable non-communicable diseases (NCDs), illnesses and absenteeism thus affecting national productivity and mental health of a country’s citizens. At AsiaFitnessToday, we believe that if we start by moving people at the workplace, it’ll create a ripple effect back home and soon, people will use that awareness and be more conscious about how they move, breathe, eat and live.

The landscape in Asia

The main concern is that people in the more developed Asian countries remain seated for long hours at work, living sedentary lifestyles and not moving as we are built to… Asian diets are rich in carbohydrates with noodles and rice as staples. They love their desserts and eat late into the night. So it’s no wonder that health problems will keep rising unless some major disruption occurs! Awareness is a great method to disrupt!

So let’s focus on what CAN be done. And it honestly starts with ourselves.
Thank you!
