Don’t Sit Down

Came across an interesting study about the health impacts of sitting for long periods of time.  Even if you exercise regularly, long periods of sitting down can impact on your health.  Weird, isn’t it?

Here’s a link to the study

What they suggest is that we need to reduce or break-up prolonged sitting time with light intensity and moderate to vigorous intensity physical activities. They also suggest that perhaps we should break up our exercise time in order to achieve this.  So, instead of going to they gym for an hour and a half and doing nothing for the rest of the day, we should do 20 minutes of exercise 4 or 5 times during the day.

It sounds great in theory but the reality is that most of us have jobs or are running households and this just isn’t practical.  Maybe employers can lead they way and show more flexibility in the workplace????

    yeah! Get the bosses to include more breaks. But wouldn’t that mean staying longer? mmm….
