New Study: Adults Are Sitting Way Too Much

News

Everyone knows that sitting too much is bad for your health but how many hours is too much?

According to a recent study published in the medical journal JAMA, one in four adults sits for more than eight hours a day.

On top of that, one in every 10 Americans reported being physically inactive as well.

Research shows sitting for long periods of time can increase your chances for early death… no matter how much you exercise.

If you work a sedentary job, experts say you should get up and walk around for five minutes every half hour.

And when you get home, be sure to get your heart rate up to really see the positive effects on your health.
