How prolonged sitting can hurt you

In recent years a variety of major international research has produced compelling evidence that sitting more than 4 hours each day leads to:

• The enzymes responsible for burning fat shutting down
• Reduced metabolic rate
• Stopping of the electricity flow in the legs

The result leads to increased risks of heart disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer (amongst other things.) A variety of studies have warned that sedentary lifestyles are likely to be causing as many deaths as smoking.

Consider adding a reminder to your calendar to stand or walk once each hour.
