Expatriate healthcare customers might want to think about increasing their activity levels to improve their well-being.
According to the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, around 25 per cent of employees regularly work all day without taking a break.
This does not appear to be doing their bodies much good as 46 per cent reported that they were experiencing physical pains due to being in the same position for too long.
The research comes ahead of the first Monday in February – thought to be the day when most people ring in sick to work.
To avoid this in the future, physiotherapists are encouraging people to improve their levels of activity.
Staff could stretch at their desks, take 'micro-breaks' or even go to exercise classes during their lunch breaks.
Clare Claridge, chartered physiotherapist, commented: "Exercise is an excellent way to improve your health and help your state of mind.
"There's nothing worse than being cooped up in an office behind a desk all day for your mental and physical well-being."
