Do You Have Sitting Disease?
We are a sedentary society, so many of us drive to work, work at a desk for 8 or more hours and then cozy up on the couch in the evening. All this sitting and inactivity is taking a toll on our health. There's even a name for it: Sitting Disease. Inactivity increases your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and obesity. So how do you start combating sitting disease, and all its associated conditions? Get moving!
Here are a few easy tips to get more activity into your daily routine:
1. Get up and stretch at least every hour.
2. Stand to talk on the phone.
3. Walk to your co-workers desk and talk, instead of sending an email.
