“One of the most dangerous activities in your day could be lurking right below you.”
You know I am ALWAYS telling you to move your assets. Here is scientific proof that we absolutely need to do that in order to have a healthy life:
“Studies across the board have shown that sitting for prolonged periods of time has proven negative effects.
"According to a recent study by the American Journal of Epidemiology, sitting more than six hours a day can raise your risk of death–even those who regularly exercise.”
Notice that last line: “Even those who regularly exercise.” Wow! So if you work out with me 5 days a week, but still sit in front of the computer or TV for 6 hours a day…
Yes, life gets in the way, but here’s what these studies say you can do about it:
“Though time spent sitting is usually an inevitable part of the day, learn to take important steps to minimize its burden on your body.
"Re-evaluate the time you spend on the couch, at a desk, or in the car, and learn to stand up for yourself.”
- Walk instead of driving when you can.
- Stand instead of sitting when you can.
- Put that cart back in the store.
- Don’t look for the closest parking space.
- Go into the store or bank; don’t use the drive-through
- Etc. etc. etc.
Make moving your assets a part of your life and you will have a long and healthy life.
