Get started by watching the video below...
Sitting has become such a common activity in our society. Long gone are the days of getting up early in the morning, hunting and gathering food all day, and then coming home and relaxing. Instead we get up, sit at the table and eat, get in the car and drive to work, get out of the car and sit at a desk most of the day, get back in the car and drive home, sit at the table and eat dinner, and then sit in front of the TV until we go to bed an repeat again the next day.
The number of hours of sitting has been identified by the CDC as a major health risk on the same magnitude as smoking.
Lack of activity leads to all kinds of chronic health conditions.... obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and chronic musculoskeletal pains such as back and neck pain.
