Has remote work got you feeling stagnant? Are you tired and unmotivated? If so, this is the episode for you. Whereas we’re already prone to a sedentary lifestyle, COVID only made things worse. So, how do we get our groove back? According to guest Lizzy Williamson, founder, and author of Two Minute Moves, it’s all about getting up and getting moving. Incorporating movement into our workday is critical to not only our physical health but to our mental health as well. To learn more about how you can get that blood (and productivity) flowing, give this episode a listen.


  • Our brains don't respond best to sedentary work, but it has become our “new normal.”
  • One-third of people have reported that, since COVID, their mental health has suffered which inevitably leads to lower productivity in the workplace.
  • The brain is built to detect and respond to change, not to engage with a task that goes on for hours and hours, so one of the best things you can do is to take a brief mental break, get up, and get moving.
  • Businesses should give employees permission to take a couple of minutes out of their day to look after themselves. 
  • Movement is a critical piece of the productivity pie; when we care for our physical health, it cascades into other areas of our lives, including the workplace.


Coming to us all the way from Sydney, Australia, Lizzy Williamson is passionate about helping people incorporate “bite-sized wellbeing breaks” into their daily lives. She is the founder and author of Two Minute Moves and a fitness expert with over fifteen years of experience in getting people up and moving.
