Sitting Too Long For Hours Could Be Dangerous For Your Health, Scientists Explains

 

11. Glutes

What you call your butt. They lose their shape. They become softer and you tend to lose your stride over time.

 

12. Other issues

Heart disease, sluggish blood flow, lesser thyroxine, lethargy, diabetes thanks to the sluggish heart rate, you name it.

Inactivity is a slow poison. An ideal body too is the devil’s workshop.

Your legs, which help you right from the moment you wake up, suffer a great deal too. One common issue is that tissue fluid accumulates in the muscle tissues causing pain. And that pain takes a huge amount of time to heal completely. Your joints get weaker too, crackling every time you move an inch.

It is no surprise that osteoporosis is a huge deal in today’s world and middle aged people get affected by it.

Again, the reason is the lack of circulation because of inactivity.

 

Shocked enough?

Are you thinking that the paycheck’s a big motivation?

Well brother, what good will it do if you get a heart attack? Or if diabetes causes a failed kidney?

You can’t chew money, can you, if your stomach gives way.

While there is time, do something about it.

Make it a point to have some kind of physical activity in life. It can be running, it can be skipping, hell it can also be playing a sport with your friends.

Try to wake up a bit earlier and walk to the bus stand instead of hitching a ride.

On weekends, do some yoga. It doesn’t even require you to get out of the house.

But most importantly, even if you are sitting, sit with right posture. Don’t slouch, slump, hunch or whatever.

Same with standing and walking.

Try free-hand exercises.

And, if we have managed to scare you straight, get off your bottom and go work out. If not anything else, do it for the sex.

And you might just live to see your children graduate.

Peace out.
