A Sedentary Society
We sit for about 7 to 15 hours a day during our commute, looking at computers, eating, or watching television. We are no doubt the most sedentary generation in history. We have become a society that defaults to sitting. While this may seem like a trivial development to some, a desk chair-centric lifestyle has major implications for our overall health and productivity. Sitting negatively impacts our metabolic system, increases cardiovascular diseases, changes the way our bodies break down sugar, and much more.
