Wyze Tip of the Day
First, what do we mean when we refer to sitting disease? The "sitting disease," or a sedentary lifestyle, is a term used to describe individuals whom engage in prolonged periods of sitting or overall inactivity. While sitting down all day may seem harmless, you may be surprised by the negative impact it has on your health. Negative effects such as an increased risk for type 2 diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers (breast and colon) are all found to be associated with the sitting disease.
Health risks caused by sedentarism and the dangers of sitting can be prevented simply by moving more during the day. This doesn’t mean you need to get those old dusty running shoes out of the closet and start training for a marathon. There are plenty of easy and convenient ways you can integrate movement into your schedule, whether at home or in the workplace.
Every adult should participate in moderate-intensity cardio physical activity on 3-5 days for a minimum of 150 minutes each week, or participate in vigorous-intensity cardio physical activity on 3-5 days for a minimum of 75 minutes each week to circumvent the dangers of sitting. This should be done in combination with 8-10 strength-training exercises, 8-12 repetitions of each exercise twice each week. #sittingdisease #deskjob #backpain #physicaltherapy #rehab #shoulderpain #healthiswealth #healthyliving #stayactive #lifestylechanges #personaltraining #raleigh #healthylifestyle #fitnessislife #trainingday #walking #running #disease #illness #cancerprevention
