A sedentary lifestyle is described by the Department of Health as a "silent killer". Evidence is showing that sitting or lying down for long periods, is bad for your health.
Sitting too much is believed to increase your risk of developing chronic diseases, such as heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes, as well as weight gain and obesity. And this is - even though you workout regularly.
So what to do then?
Sit or lie down less. Set a limit for tv watching and other sedentary activities and raise your activity levels. Go out and get active!
Have a fab, active day!
