Sitting for a long time is bad for your health

Studies have shown that people who work while sitting have about twice the risk of heart disease than those who stand.

Sitting also increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, all of which promote dementia.

Fades the effects of physical activity

Even if you work out 7 hours a week, you can't reverse the effects of sitting for 7 hours, but that shouldn't be an excuse to quit activity.

It's not clear why, but doctors think sitting may change the way your body responds to insulin, the hormone that helps it burn sugar and carbohydrates for energy.

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot that forms in the leg, often from sitting for a long time.

Lack of mobility increases the risk of weight gain.

If you sit in front of electronic devices, it can affect the quality of your sleep and cause restlessness. Plus, spending too much time alone can make you withdraw from friends and loved ones, which is linked to social anxiety.

The sitting position puts a lot of stress on the neck and back muscles, especially if you bend over. Get up and move for a minute or two every half hour to keep your spine straight.

Sit for long periods of time and blood can pool in your legs. This puts increased pressure on your veins creating varicose veins or spider veins.

Older adults who are not active may be more likely to develop osteoporosis (weakened bones).

People who sit for a long time are more prone to colon, endometrial or lung cancer, while older women are more prone to breast cancer.
