Movement is life. Everyone knows that when you sit a little and move a lot then it's good for your health. Sedentary lifestyle is dangerous to your health. According to the World Health Organization sedentary lifestyle is even more dangerous than smoking! A number of studies confirm the correlation of sedentary lifestyle with obesity, cardiovascular diseases and even some forms of cancer.
Despite the fact that everyone knows about danger of sedentary lifestyle people are spending more and more time engaged in sedentary works. Intellectual workers spend more than 90% of their working hours by sitting in the office.
