  1. 39% of adults are overweight or obese
  2. 1 in 6 children are overweight or obese
  3. The average adult spends 1/3 of their day in front of a screen - that's longer than we sleep
  4. 5 hours a week is all you need to reach the recommended amount of physical activity
  5. Only 57% of women are doing enough exercise to impact their health
  6. 1 in 2 adults are NOT getting their recommended daily amount of physical activity
  7. 1 in 3 workers spent at least 3/4 of their time at work sitting


Awareness and education about health, wellbeing, diet and exercise is more readily available than ever before, yet global obesity and preventable disease rates continue to rise - at an alarming rate.  
It’s disappointing that our increased focus and education on health and wellbeing is not converting into actions to improve it.
We need to make a change – NOW!
We need an Active Nation Day.



A day when we come together to show our commitment to being healthy by simply getting active. At Lorna Jane we recognised this and in 2012 we decided to organise a day for people to STOP and take a moment to prioritise their health and wellbeing, Active Nation Day was founded. Now, 6 years later we need it more than ever.

Our aim is to get people moving all around the world to show their commitment to a fitter future. We want you to MOVE on Active Nation Day. No matter what you’re doing, where you are or who you’re with. Ask as many people as you can to get involved too! We need YOU to spread the MOVEment.

On Active Nation Day - The Last Sunday in September, let’s inspire everyone; family, friends, colleagues and community, to get moving wherever they are.
Because, one person can make a difference, but when we move together we can change the world.

Are you ready to make a difference? Join the MOVEment to create a healthier world for ourselves and our future by getting active on Active Nation Day.

what are you waiting for?!
