What Is Sitting Disease?

-Have you ever heard of "Sitting disease"?

When I first heard about it, the name really didn't sound like something I'd ever want to know anything  more  about.

However, it's something that unfortunately, most of us have in common
- yeah, myself included.

It's just another term for a sedentary lifestyle.

      So What Can You Do to Prevent It?

    Your body was designed to move. Movement triggers many beneficial functions in your body including hormone release, a balanced metabolism, better brain function and longer and much improved sleep.

    -The good news is that you don’t have to engage in intense physical activity. In fact, continuous moderate activity is preferred, and less stressful on the body as well.

    -Simply walking places instead of driving each day can help.

    Take breaks from your desk and walk. When you talk on the phone, stand up instead of sitting. If you can walk on a treadmill (or an exercise bike) at home sometimes while you watch T V – it can work wonders!

      A Simple and Easy Way to Avoid Sitting

    One great way to prevent a sedentary lifestyle is to get a pedometer. This simple five-dollar device counts your steps. If you can swing 10,000 steps each day, you'll be in a great position to avoid chronic sitting.

    And those 10,000 daily steps will not only help you to lose weight and keep it off for good, but even more importantly, they’ll help to keep you physically fit and healthy, ready for the long and happy life ahead!

    To Your Great Health, and keep that Healthy Attitude!
