Many of us sit at a computer all day with little to no movement (except your brain, of course). And if you haven’t heard the news, it turns out that even with daily bouts of exercise, the fact that there is so much sitting going on is literally killing us.
Before I became a personal trainer, I worked at a desk, from 8am-5pm, Monday through Friday. At first I liked it! I enjoyed dressing up, packing my lunch, decorating my cubicle, and interacting with my co-workers. But I’d quickly realized just how little I moved during the day, especially when I was busy. And I realized how many treats were in the break room, from donut Fridays to someone’s birthday, and the holidays. I also began to realize how mentally and physically tired I was, just from sitting all day. The couch and a bowl of pasta often sounded much better than the gym followed by a salad.
You have seen the studies and they show the same thing. The change in our world has led our workforces to sit all day. And that large amount of sitting is killing us all.
