Are you an active person? Do you think that as long as you go for a run or work out at the gym every day after leaving your office, it cancels out the harmful effects of sitting all day?
Well, according to a recent study from the American Heart Association, this is the WRONG way of thinking! A team of cardiology experts published their findings in the journal “Circulation” about the link between sitting and health. Their conclusions say that no amount of physical activity is enough to combat the dangerous health effects of sitting for hours each day.
According to their study, “popular ways to sit less include: trading TV time for active hobbies, walking or biking to work instead of riding in a car or bus, or hosting a walking meeting instead of gathering your colleagues in a conference room. Even setting regular alarms on your phone can be a helpful reminder to stand up, stretch, and decrease your sitting time by a few minutes each day. Your body will give you a standing ovation.”
So...FitTime5 can definitely help you with setting those reminders and stretching throughout the day!
