Do you sit for over 6 hours each day? The effects are deadly and costly to your wellbeing. Our modern lifestyle, with its lack of everyday physical activity and exercise training, predisposes people to chronic lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and coronary artery diseases. Increasing evidence highlights that accumulating sitting time in prolonged bouts is detrimental to your health. Before you change a behaviour it’s wise to look at what you are currently doing? How long do you sit each day? At work? At home? Travelling to and from work? Is it over 6 hours?
Sitting for extended periods can indeed have adverse effects on our health. It’s become a common challenge in our modern, technology-driven lives.
Taking a look at your current habits is a crucial first step toward positive change. Awareness of how much time you spend sitting, both at work and during leisure, allows you to make informed decisions about incorporating more movement into your routine.
Breaking up prolonged sitting with short bursts of activity, incorporating standing desks, or scheduling regular breaks for movement can be transformative. Stay tuned for more nuggets of wisdom! 🌟 #MoveMore #HealthyLiving #WellnessJourney
