Video of the Day: You’re Addicted to Sitting
Addicted to sitting? What does that even mean? Even if I am addicted, well it seems like there could be a lot worse things to be addicted to. Well yes there are worse things to be addicted too; you could be alcoholic, hooked on drugs or even hooked on phonics. But just because it’s not as bad as smoking meth doesn’t mean it isn’t bad for you too. Being an alcoholic is generally considered less bad than being a meth head (for example), but that doesn’t mean that being an alcoholic isn’t extremely bad for your health. So think about it you drive to work, maybe you write your quarterly reports on a computer, then go out for lunch (again sitting down), you go back to work and finish out your day reading those all-important memos, then you head home again sitting in a car when you get home on goes the T.V. and laptop and guess what you’re sitting again! Unless you’re doing manual labor or retail sales for a job the chances are you’re sitting down most or all of your day. Quite simply the human body wasn’t designed to sit all day, really it wasn’t really designed to sit down at all. In today’s society however basically you are sitting down all day and standing up has become less natural feeling for a lot of people than sitting. Check out the video if you’d like to hear a bit more about what sitting addiction can do, and maybe you’ll look into a standing desk.
