The Risk of Sitting Down Too Much
Is It Bad For You?
Sitting down isn’t bad for you, but sitting down too much can pose a threat to your health and well-being. Given the demands of our modern lifestyle, it is inevitable that we are sedentary most of the time.
Sitting down too much can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and premature death.
According to a study by researchers from the University of Jyväskylä in Finland, reducing your sitting time by 21 minutes can improve your health. Participants of the study increased light physical activity and took frequent breaks from sitting down at work which helped to reduce fasting blood sugar levels and reduce the risk of cholesterol.
