ARE YOU SITTING YOURSELF TO DEATH?
How a Sedentary Lifestyle is taking its toll on your body
Sitting Disease is a modern day health epidemic associated with prolonged sitting in poor posture. If this sounds like you, then you could be suffering.
You sit at a desk all day at work, then you go home from a long workday and check your social media and watch TV. After watching a couple of shows you go to bed and repeat the same sedentary behaviors tomorrow. You end up sitting 8-12 hours per day, and sleeping another 8. Resulting in 16-20 hours of inactivity.
Before you know it you have gained weight, you feel exhausted after a day at work, your back hurts, and you can see your health diminishing right before your eyes. You want to make changes, you wish you could be more active, but your job requires you to work at a desk. So you keep sitting yourself sick.
Did you know that prolonged sitting in poor posture predisposes you to depression, neck and back pain, obesity, chronic disease? Men and women who sit more than 6 hours per day are more likely to more chronic health issues than active individuals.
If your job requires you to be seated, don’t worry, there is a solution to overcome Sitting Disease that doesn’t require you to quit your job.
