This Infographic Will Show You How Harmful Sitting Too Much Is

You probably know that excessive sitting is bad, but do you really know why or what it does to the various systems in your body? Several experts weighed in to create this clever infographic that details the harmful effects of too much sitting, from top to bottom – No pun intended. They’ve also thrown in some tips to help you sit the right way, when being in a seated position is absolutely necessary for what you’re doing.

Sitting

    The harmful effects of too much sitting are clear. From organ damage to poor posture to early death, there’s enough evidence to convince even the most committed couch potato to get up and get moving. It’s understandable that those who have physical limitations or who work at a job that requires them to sit at a desk are at a bit of a disadvantage. However, the good news is – as the chart indicates – there are steps you can take to help counteract the negative effects of sitting. Sitting on a stability ball, rather than a chair with a back, forces you to keep your core engaged. They’re easy to find and generally pretty affordable, like this one for example.  A wireless headset, such as this one, is another great tool for preventing neck strain. They can be a bit pricey, but you can always check to see if your employer might help pitch in with the cost. The experts’ other suggestions, like taking a brief walk or trying some stretches or even yoga poses designed to help chronic sitters, are totally free and easy to fit into even the busiest schedule. So, stand up, take a break, go for a walk. Maybe even step outside!? You may find that these breaks from a full day of sitting can improve even more than just your physical well being.
