A research team in the US, claims we spend 7.7 hours per day, on average, sitting down, and their findings say sitting around is killing us. American adults may be able to boost their life expectancy by an average of two years by sitting for fewer than three hours a day.
While the group, who recently published their findings in the online journal BMJ Open, admits that this is quite the task. Diabetes, heart attack, and stroke may all be increased by an anchored lifestyle; and that goes double if you’re doing it in front of the television. The overall message is to move around, and be much more energetic in your day-to-day lifestyle. Walk the dog, play with you friends or children in the yard. Take care of your body and reap the benefits.
