Sitting for too long can kill you

Sitting in your desk chair or sitting while watching TV could be killing you. The good news is there are simple steps you can take to get moving.

According to the Physical Living website the average person sits for 9.3 hours a day.

A person who sits to watch to TV for three hours a day is 64 percent more likely to die from heart disease than a person who doesn’t.

The risk of heart disease increases by 11 percent for each additional hour.

Sitting for long periods causes muscles to tighten which makes injury more likely.
