As adults with work and responsibilities, we spend most of our lives in a seated position. Whether sitting in front of a computer at work, or in a bucket seat on the commute we are putting our health at risk.
“That seems dramatic,” you’re probably thinking. It’s just that seated position is not good for spinal health. Why do you think so many people end up with lower back problems later in life?
Also, seated position isn’t great for air-flow, causing you to feel lethargic. You don’t burn enough calories when you are sitting. And I believe that all this sitting contributes to the obesity problem.
So how do you do you counter act the effects of sitting all day?
