Worldwide Recess Day: Get Outside, Get Moving

Recess isn’t just for kids any­more. In a time when we’re all teth­ered to our lap­tops, smart­phones, and work sta­tions, the need to take a few min­utes to get out­doors has nev­er been greater.

World­wide Recess Day 2012 kicks off tomor­row and KEEN has found the per­fect way to moti­vate us all to take time to get out­side and get mov­ing — even if we’re work­ing. With Recess Is Back, a glob­al ini­tia­tive of KEEN stores, dis­trib­u­tors, and offices all over the world host­ing recess activ­i­ties tomor­row like four-square, hop scotch and tetherball.

We can all get in on the action by tak­ing ten min­utes tomor­row to get mov­ing. Snap a pho­to of your­self get­ting back into recess and share it on Insta­gram or Twit­ter using the hash­tag #Take10. KEEN will gath­er the pho­tos into a spe­cial gallery on their site and award one pho­to every hour with a pair of KEEN footwear.

So, an oppor­tu­ni­ty to low­er your stress lev­el, bal­ance your work/play lifestyle, and win a pair of awe­some footwear. What’s not to love about that?
