Stand up for your health
you a fairly healthy person, but still tired at the end of a workday? There
are many ways to get more energy during a workday, e.g. a
quick nap, a healthy lunchbox and walking the stairs instead of taking the elevator.
But are you familiar with
the easiest way of them all - simply standing up more?
shows that breaking sedentary behaviour makes you more efficient, more productive
and happier - plus it is good for your health. Actually, there is now consistent evidence
linking high levels of sedentary behaviour with elevated risk for type II
diabetes, cardiovascular disease, premature mortality (early death), some
cancers (particularly colon, lung and endometrial cancers) and depression.
However, these elevated risks
can be reduced through several simple steps, and standing more is one of them.
