Exercising while you work, can it be?
According to an online article by James A. Levine, M.D., Ph.D. from the Mayo Clinic, “Researchers have linked sitting for long periods of time with a number of health concerns, including obesity and metabolic syndrome — a cluster of conditions that includes increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels.” Levine also mentions that sitting for long periods of time can increase the risk of death from cardiovascular disease and cancer.
Now that I have your attention, what can we do about it? Very few of us can afford to quit work and most of us work an average of 8+ hours a day. Where are we going to find the time in our busy schedules to fit in a daily cardio routine? In the car? Where do we spend a majority of our day? At the office!
