Sitting Disease

Lord, you have examined me and know all about me. You know when I sit down and when I get up. You know my thoughts before I think them. Psalm 139:1-2 (NCV)

Believe it or not, the average American employee will sit anywhere from 7.7 to 15 hours a day without moving. Researchers are now beginning to unravel the catastrophic impact that sitting for long periods of time can cause to human health. Experts have coined the phrase “sitting disease” to describe it.

This disease is easy to prevent. People who move just a little bit—even fidgeting or getting up from their desks on a frequent basis to get a cup of coffee, or taking a flight of stairs—significantly improve their health.

—Exercise Physiologist Sean Foy
