Is Sitting At Your Desk Killing You?[POLL]

There are new studies out that saying that sitting on your butt all day is dangerous.

The new study says that sitting for just three hours a day can cut two years off of our lifespan.

Peter Katzmarzyk, the lead author of the newest study, says “sitting is bad” and likens physical inactivity to smoking, adding:

What the results mean is that we got everyone in the U.S. to sit less, our population life expectancy would be two years higher, so instead of living to 78.5, we would be expected to live to 80.5 years old. That’s a really big deal.”

Want to keep those two years, but are stuck at a desk all day? Try working while standing or take breaks to walk around the office. Take a walk outside during your lunch break and make sure to exercise once you’re off the clock.
