We’d all love to grow younger each day instead of the opposite. But until we find the proverbial fountain of youth, diet and exercise will have to do.
There is a simple truth that cannot be avoided: human beings are moving less and sitting more. People need to move more, and they need to move better. Here are some shocking statistics on current human activity levels:
Indeed, the term “sitting disease” is now being used by the scientific community to refer to the metabolic syndrome and ill effects associated with an overly sedentary lifestyle. People are sitting for so long during the day that they cannot maintain proper posture. As a result, their bodies present with postural problems and movement impairments that make exercising more difficult and require special anatomical considerations for fitness programming. Sitting at a desk all day also creates a steep uphill battle for a 30- or 60-minute workout to balance out the ill effects of sedentary lifestyles.
