The Key to Living Better and Longer

News Summary:

Fortunately, there are many options to help remedy our sitting epidemic.

News Content:

We've heard "exercise is good for you," but what are the dangers of not exercising?A sedentary lifestyle puts us at risk for diabetes, obesity, back pain, heart disease and depression, and the list goes on. Some studies show that sitting for as little as three hours per day can shorten your lifespan. In the United States, many office jobs require us to sit for long periods of time. Then, after a day of hard work, many of us reward ourselves with leisure activities, such as television, video games, reading books and surfing the web. Research shows that Americans average 7.5 hours per day of sitting. Fortunately, there are many options to help remedy our sitting epidemic. Here are a few tips to get started:

Take the stairs instead of the elevator

Park farther away from stores to add a few extra steps to your day

Hold walking meetings

At work, use a convertible standing desk, and switch from sitting to standing

Use an elliptical or treadmill while enjoying leisure activities, like streaming TV show

Engage in free activities at local parks and recreation center

Join a local "Y" or walking group: exercise is more enjoyable when it's a group activity


So, how much walking is necessary to improve our health? The American Heart Association and the American College of Sports Medicine recommend at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise per week. If you are not able to do that much, we recommend you start out slow and work your way up -- because every little bit helps.
