Stop Sitting

By PSSM Staff,

Our bodies aren’t designed to sit all day. The evolution and advancement of technology has caused a de-evolution in our physical sustainability. Studies are showing that on average people with desk jobs are now sitting more hours per day than they sleep which is terrible for your overall health and wellness. Increased sitting contributes to insulin resistance and type II diabetes, increased risk for cardiovascular disease, drops in the healthy cholesterol your body needs, decreased calorie burning ability, muscular de-conditioning, and much more. If you work in a job that requires you to sit all day take frequent walks around the office to counteract the sitting you’re doing, take the stairs when you can, stand at your desk and march in place while working multiple times per day.
