The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends adults get 2 hours and 30 minutes (150 minutes) of moderate activity every week. How we choose to fit this into our already busy schedules is all up to us.
Using the creative mind can bring us to stop making excuses and figure out how to incorporate healthy habits in a fun way. Having a supportive environment can encourage body movement, lift the spirit, and bring people together. That’s what Volkswagen had in mind when starting this sensational public experiment for their Fun Theory project.
Here is one of my favorite examples where creativity, public art, and health come together. Exercise doesn’t have to mean going to the gym or popping in the workout dvd. Designing in creative ways that encourage playful body movement can add delight and attention to the otherwise robotic daily routine. Play, enjoy, and get moving.
