From Beth Shergalis:
Recent studies, including one by the American College of Sports Medicine, the worlds largest exercise and sports science organizations, found that a sedentary lifestyle, regardless of whether you are getting rigorous exercise, is still considered a health risk factor. If you are sitting at your desk most of your work day or sitting on your couch, not getting up to move, you are sedentary.The same studies have also found that there is a strong connection between how much time you spend sitting and your risk of significant health problems including obesity, diabetes, cancer, heart disease premature death. It is suggested that getting up and moving once an hour will help combat the negative effects of a sedentary lifestyle.Easy to Use.
