Want to live a longer life?

Then don’t sit down. It could be that easy! No, that doesn’t mean that you can’t ever sit down, just sit down a lot less!

A new study suggests that being seated is shortening our lives. The life expectancy, according to the study, is shortened.

Too much sitting leads to changes in resting glucose levels and blood pressure, and boosts levels of certain biomarkers of cancer and cardiovascular disease.

In the latest study, research showed that if we’d sit three hours or less per day, we could extend our lives by up to two years.

It’s reported that 30 minutes of daily exercise is important for good health, but there are other factors that come into play with the other 23 and one-half hours left.

But don’t worry, little changes can make a big difference. Instead of emailing colleagues, get up and go talk to them instead. And during your lunch break, try to squeeze in a short walk.
