… Because they say sitting is the new smoking. No joke.
Has anyone else been hearing about this??
They’re saying our sedentary way of life is affecting us, and our health, so much more than we thought, and it’s had me concerned and curious. So, of course I looked into it.
I don’t want to ring any alarm bells (but I will), or make anyone afraid of sitting down (that’s me right now)(gah)… But basically studies are saying that sitting at work, in the car… just constantly being in that same position increases our risk of disease or health conditions in a way medical science is only just beginning to understand.
My boyfriend actually invested in a standing desk a couple of years ago and swears by it, and I’m seeing this as a more common thing over time. What do you think of it all? Anyone a convert to a life of standing up?
