Do You Have Sitting Disease?

  • Diabetes?
  • Heart Disease?
  • High Blood Pressure?
  • Achy Back?
  • Foggy Brain?

Sitting IS shortening your life.

Excessive time spent sitting increases the risk of diabetes and heart attack, and causes high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, sore backs and foggy brains.

Avg. hours driving + Avg. hours of sitting at home = Too much sitting

Here’s how to defeat Sitting Disease:

Standing up during meetings or while on the phone

Sitting on an exercise ball instead of a chair

Taking regular breaks to stretch

Wearing a pedometer and starting a friendly competition with coworkers to see who can take the most steps in one day

Starting a lunchtime walking group

Grabbing coffee or lunch a few extra blocks away

Holding a walking meeting with colleagues

Invest in an elevated desk

SIT LESS. STAND MORE. START NOW.
