I new study has been published which links the amount of time you spend sitting down to life expecanty. This shouldn’t be a big surprise because the more the you sit the less active you become. The less active you become, the greater the chance of gaining weight and not working out the muscle that never stops. If you sit for less than three hours a day you can add about two years to your life. So get up off your ass and go do something, anything. I am typing this as I stand.
What would happen if the entire population of adults in the U.S. reduced the amount of time they spent sitting or watching television?
Researchers, whose work is published in the British Medical Journal Open, say Americans may live longer. They estimate a gain of two years to life expectancy for reducing sitting to less than three hours a day, or an additional 1.38 years if everybody limited the time they spent plopped in front of the television to two hours.
