Do you sit at a desk most of your work day? Do your evening plans include tv or more time sitting at a computer? A new study by researcher Thomas Yates, PhD and senior lecturer at University of Leicester in Leicester, England, was recently published in the AMERICAN JOURNAL OF KIDNEY DISEASE. Yates reported that kidney disease is linked to prolonged sitting. Men who reported spending the most hours sitting were at 19% increased risk for kidney disease. While women who sat for eight hours or more daily were 30% more likely to develop chronic kidney disease than those who sat less than three hours per day.
So what can you do to lower that risk. If you have a seated job at work, you may want to try a standing desk and if you are seated, get up regularly and move around. We all need to be moving. But if you have a sedentary job, it is extremely important to move when you are not working. Get up and move to decrease the risk of kidney disease. Hypnotherapy can be used as a great tool to motivate you to add movement into your life. Get moving, decrease your risk of kidney disease and BE WELL.
