Recently, I have been reading a lot about how being sedentary can be as harmful as smoking. I know you exercise regularly but does 3-5 hours of exercise actually make up for an otherwise sedentary lifestyle? Apparently not. It seems that, even though exercise is deemed to be “good for you” if you spend the vast majority of your time seated and immobile (as many of us do) then you are at risk of suffering the same diseases normally associated with the rest of the unfit non-exercising population!
So, to that end, I want to leave you with this piece of advice – be more active. I don’t mean exercise more necessarily but rather that you should do your utmost to seek out opportunities to simply move more and sit less. Trying walking to work, taking regular trips to the water cooler every 30 minutes or so, doing some gardening, playing with your kids…and I don’t mean on their/your games consul! The key to long term health and longevity is, it seems, as simple as being more active and getting up and off your but more often.
So, from everyone here at Fitnroama, please accept our heartfelt thanks for being an avid and loyal reader.
