Sitting for more than 6 hours a day raises your mortality risk no matter how hard (or how much) you exercise before or afterwards.
Chronic sitting has also found to be more deadly than obesity alone (so imagine what that might look like if those two are paired together ).
God gave us our bodies so that we would use them in all the gifts we have been given.
If you have a desk job, please …… for the health of it, consider these alternatives:
if affordable, use a stand up desk.
get up frequently and take a quick walk (grab the mail, take the dog for a walk, take the stairs instead of the elevator)
use part of your lunch break to take a power walk
park farther away from your destination purposefully
learn some basic chair yoga poses you can incorporate into your day.
walk whenever you have a choice of walking instead of driving.
The short term benefits of incorporating movement into your day improve mood, energy levels, and sleeping at night (not to mention the grounding benefits of getting outdoors if that is feasible in the situation you’re in).
