If you are reading this, it's likely it's time to get up and move. An analysis of health data for 167,000 adults, reported by Peter T. Katzmarzyk, PhD, associate executive director for population science, Pennington Biomedical Center at Louisiana State University System in Baton Rouge, Lousiana, found that length of life expectancy was correlated to a sedentary life style.
The researchers found that those who were sedentary for less than three hours per day had a life expectancy two years longer than those who sat for three or more hours a day. Diabetes, heart disease and other health problems are correlated to a sedentary lifestyle. If you work at a desk for three hours a day or more, set aside times to get up and move, A simple timer that rings once an hour or every 90 minute can be a reminder and may prolong your life.
If you need a little motivation to get moving, hypnotherapy can be a valuable tool. Sit less. Get moving. Live longer and BE WELL.
