Re-energise your virtual work day with Lizzy Williamson, Founder Two Minute Moves
How long have you been sitting there?
Has it been another day of back-to-back Zoom calls, with little time for movement breaks?
We know this sedentary behaviour often leads to fatigue, disengagement, low mood, lack of focus and an uncomfortable, aching body – all of which can be very costly.
In this episode, Tom speaks with the inspiring Lizzy Williamson, Founder of Two Minute Moves, to talk:
- Lizzy’s experience with post-natal depression and how she used nostalgia and movement to help her re-establish a self care routine.
- The science and art of a well-crafted movement break
- Step-by-step breakdown on how to create a micro-break movement in your working day
- The step-by-step requirements to set up a sustainable habit of movement
- The future of workplace events
Dubbed by the US media as ‘the excuse-buster from Down-Under’, and as the founder of Two Minute Moves, I’m on a mission to help people integrate little moments of movement in their day to transform the way they work and feel.
Two Minute Moves came about from my experience of finding exercise and self-care almost impossible to do when I had post-natal depression. I couldn’t find the motivation, the time, the energy, in fact, it was the last thing I felt like doing. But what I discovered saved and changed my life. I made a decision that might not have felt like like much, but, in fact, made a big difference.
Now, with over fifteen years of experience, as a fitness presenter and personal trainer, plus the regular fitness expert on Australian television, I share my Two Minute Moves with companies, conferences and individuals around the world to help people discover the transformation a little moment of movement can make.
