Taking place on Friday 13 September, Keen hopes to get people to take breaks from work/school/study/slavery to go any where without a ceiling. A study conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Keen in August last year revealed that of the 2,262 US adults surveyed who are employed full-time, 70 percent never or rarely took a recess type activity break during the course of their day.
Sitting around isn't good for your health, with a few studies showing it shortens your lifespan (fear not, there's always the treadmill desk). But research suggests adults who take a break are happier, have lower stress levels and are able to maintain a healthier work-life balance.
So, in association with Good magazine, Keen is getting people to take a photo of themselves doing their favourite "recess" activity and then post it on the Good Facebook page. Each week from now until 13 September, the week's best picture wins a pair of shoes.
