Our bodies are meant to move, but many of us spend the majority of our day sitting still. When you have a sedentary job, paired with a commute and a bit of screen time at home, the hours add up quickly. And while a daily bout of exercise helps, it’s not enough to counteract the effects of sitting for so many hours.
Sitting is now compared to smoking, and perhaps for good reason. Sitting for long periods has been associated with heart disease, vascular problems such as varicose veins, back pain, herniated discs, hip pain, shoulder pain, headaches and muscle degeneration.
Fortunately, there are things you can do to mitigate the risks of sitting at your workplace. Not only will your body feel better, but your mind will too!
You’re invited to a FREE workshop at Ascend Fitness + Lifestyle to discover how you can combat the negative effects of sitting.
