Who We Are And What We Do

Moving Mindz Helps you to track & improve

Based on years of research, we’ve crafted a corporate wellness program that tracks, motivates and helps you to improve your physical and mental health. Our activity challenge is designed and proven to engage teams more than a typical fitness or a wellness program.

Why Invest in Mental health?

Investment in mental health not only saves lives but also protects those with mental illness from the catastrophic financial consequences of poor mental health. Yet for most people with mental illness, access to mental health services and treatment remains an aspiration, and not the reality (Ivbijaro Jun 2011).

According to The Global Economic Burden of Non-Communicable Diseases, Program on the Global Demography of Ageing, by 2030 mental illness is projected to cost the global community over US$6 Trillion (Bloom 2012).

Frighteningly this places the impact of mental health beyond that of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. People who experience mental illness are known to be a much higher risk for morbidity and early mortality from physical health issues than the general population. Around 45 per cent of Australians between the ages of 16 and 85 experience a mental health condition at some point in their lifetime. In a given 12-month period, 20 per cent of Australians will have experienced a mental health condition (ABS 2007).

Why Physical Movement?

Physical activity/movement/incidental activity represents a cornerstone in the primary prevention of at least 35 chronic conditions (Booth 2007), including areas such as heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, breast and colon cancer, high blood sugar, and stroke. While physical activity has been shown to be also beneficial for people with severe depression (Stanton 2013), and has become an important focus in recent times, it is certainly an underutilised tool. Large studies have demonstrated that adequate physical activity is associated with fewer depressive symptoms and the most recent of these meta-analyses showed that in clinically depressed individuals, exercise has a moderate effect on symptoms of depression, highlighting its place as an adjunct treatment option (Cooney 2013).

Incidental activity, measured by daily walking steps has been an area of focus, especially in the workplace. The focus has primarily been on taking 10,000 steps a day for better health. 10,000 steps roughly equate to 6.5 to 8km of walking per day (around 1.5 to 2 hours of walking). This level of activity well exceeds the WHO Global Strategy on Physical Health, Diet and Activity recommendations of 150 minutes of moderate physical activity per week.

In this white paper we discuss the impact of using a 100-day and 75-day pedometer-based activity challenge to measure and evaluate changes in mental health; on the psychological factors of wellbeing, stress, anxiety and depression.
