I'm sure we all know that sitting for prolonged periods of time is bad for us. So whether your sitting at a computer for work, driving or just sitting watching TV, here are two key facts you might want to know about why sitting for long periods of time is bad for you:
Increased Health Risks: Sitting for extended periods is linked to various health issues, including obesity, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. It can also contribute to poor posture, leading to musculoskeletal problems like back and neck pain.
Reduced Circulation and Muscle Activity: Sitting for hours on end slows down circulation and lowers muscle activity. This can result in decreased metabolism and even muscle degeneration over time, impacting overall physical health.
Remember, taking short breaks to stand, stretch, or walk throughout the day can significantly mitigate these risks! 'No Excuses November', make time to move more today. 🚶♂️💻
