If You Sit Still For It, Your Job is Killing You.

If You Sit Still for It, Your Job Is Killing You.

“The average person now spends 9.3 hours a day sitting. People who sit for six or more hours per day are 40 per cent more likely to die within 15 years compared to someone who sits less than three hours a day, even if they exercise. Obese people sit 2½ hours more each day than people of normal weight, according to data compiled by Medical Billing and Coding, a U.S.-based organization.”

“People who jog for half an hour in the morning and then sit at a desk all day may be no better off than those who don’t go running.”
