I posted about sitting more than 3 hours a day as being bad for us…
then this came across my screen:
Inactivity is a major cause of death worldwide, with new research suggesting that a sedentary lifestyle is on par with both smoking and obesity when it comes to raising the risk for disease and mortality.
Since posting the first bit of research I have tried to not sit as much and move around a lot more yet here I am sitting …. again.
No matter how health conscious we are, it takes a whole lot more being conscious of how much sitting we do and how inactive we really are.
All this research is forcing me to take a look at my lifestyle and make changes.
I'm getting a new laptop and I plan on standing a lot more when I am on the computer…that's hard to do right now…
And as it is summer and nice out, I am walking more, biking and kayaking – but sitting is still something I am doing too much of..
Thoughts? Comments? Thank you….
