In this modern time, we use the machines to do a lot of work with them and sometimes there is no need for manual labor. A lot of Americans have sales or office jobs and they sit for about eight or more hours per day.
A lot of people sit while they watch TV, sit in front of the computer and they sit while commuting to work and vice versa.
Technology offers a lot of benefits, but it also has some major drawbacks.
If you sit down for a long period and that happens a lot, you can cause the following problems:
- Poor posture
- Heart disease
- Chronic back pain
If you sit a lot you can also cause:
- Shoulder, neck and brain problems
- Back issues
- Degeneration of the muscles
- Deterioration of your organs
- Leg disorder
How can you fight against inactivity?
First, if you are sitting for a long period, try to keep your body straight up. You can use a backless stool.
Second, stretch yourself regularly, every 30 minutes. Walk in the office for a couple of minutes. This will help the blood flow and your brain and muscles to function optimally.
Third, you can buy a standing work desk and you will help the blood flow.
