Having a job is (usually) non-negotiable and the majority of the time, it will involve sitting (unless you are a pro athlete). If we want to make money and contribute to an ever-advancing civilization, we must put our talents and skills to good use. Who knew doing something you love (or maybe not) every day could be ruining your health?
Sitting for too long is actually quite harmful to your health, according to this study. While you are sitting, your muscles tightening up, your blood sugar is rising and obviously, your blood flow slows down. Fat begins to form in your blood and head straight to your stomach. Too much sitting can even lead to cardiovascular disease.
Make sure to take breaks in between work sessions, walk consistently and maintain an active lifestyle (exercise often) in order to lower your odds of getting any type of life-threatening disease.
