Today, we’re going to talk about sitting and what it’s doing to your fitness level.
Fitness makes up just one part of your health. You also have your diet, supplements, and sleep. But you can’t get fit without motion—without exercise.
Fitness is an enhanced capacity to survive and adapt to your environment. It’s an extra tool to help you buffer stress more easily, increase flexibility and strength, and look and feel better.
On the flip side, a sedentary lifestyle is associated with stress and disease. Sitting for long periods can affect your entire body. If you’re sitting in front of a screen for long periods, your risk for certain health issues goes up even more.
How to support your health if you have to sit for long periods:
• Take frequent breaks and stretch or exercise
• Use lumbar support while driving and a lumbar support device to stretch the lower back before bed
• Get a comfortable office chair and continue to move your body as you sit
• Get into a hobby that involves motion
• Go for long walks and get sunshine
• Get something to block the blue light from your computer screen
• Get more exercise—try yoga or pilates
• Be more aware of EMFs and distance yourself from them
• Try a treadmill desk or standing desk
