What participants are saying
“Although we live in different states and don’t have the same schedule, it was really nice to log into my email and see an email from my Take 10 Buddy.”
“[My Take 10 friend and I] are exchanging emails, encouraging each other to walk and do better, managing stress in a better way… More important we can count on each other to vent about “the journey” and to not give up! Great way to keep working in ourselves, thanks for the opportunity!”
“I really enjoy getting these. Even if I am too busy to do these, it reminds me to at least take a moment and breathe.”
“Using Take 10 activities is becoming a new habit, and it’s getting easier each day with the reminders I receive. In the midst of a busy day, it really does help to pull the ‘circuit breaker’ for 10 minutes!”
“I participated in the 10-minute exercises, most of the days, and found it to be very inspirational to my day. These few minutes prepared me for the rest of the day feeling like I was able to accomplish something for myself.”
“I am OBSESSED with these Take 10 breaks!! I know that I’m a biased sample group of one, because I’m already someone who wants to make regular healthy break times for myself, but it is so refreshing to have someone at work remind me, ‘here’s an idea to try for today and lots of us are doing it too!’ Thank you thank you thank you.”
“Thank you for having this program. It reminds me to get up and move. I find it very helpful in keeping me strong and healthy.”
“Take 10 for Yourself is a very simple, scalable physical activity offering that one can do anywhere; at home, at the desk, traveling, etc.”
“I just wanted to thank the Take 10 folks for the neck exercises they posted a few weeks ago . . . They make a HUGE difference for me! Thank you so much!!!”
