Sitting, it seems, can be a very dangerous activity.
In a study published in May in the journal Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, they reported that, to no one”™s surprise, the men who sat the most had the greatest risk of heart problems. Men who spent more than 23 hours a week watching TV and sitting in their cars (as passengers or as drivers) had a 64 percent greater chance of dying from heart disease than those who sat for 11 hours a week or less. What was unexpected was that many of the men who sat long hours and developed heart problems also exercised.
I know that sitting really bothers my back. Depressing to learn that it also might kill me.
I wrote this post standing up.
Yeah don’t talk about what might actually kill you. 🙁
I hear you 🙂
Ha, good finish there. I try to make it a habit of walking around (even in circles) when I’m on the phone during the day, but sometimes sitting for long periods of time is simply unavoidable.
