Improve Your Health The Easy Way – Stand Up

If you are one who exercises, eats well, sleeps well, and doesn’t smoke, and you think that is all it takes to stay healthy, think again.

New research says that too much time spent sitting in the office chair could be robbing you of the good health you seek.

Studies by the British Journal of Sports Medicine and Centre of Inflammation Metabolism indicate that sitting for eight hours at a time could be as bad for us as smoking or abusing alcohol.

The Wexner Medical Center claims that the study shows that since standing up burns 50 percent more calories, being on our feet more would go a long way toward making us healthier.

I think the center has a perspective that can help change our lives.

“Not everyone should have a desk and a chair, we should talk about health-chair reform — not health-care reform.”
