Sit Less. Move More.

Sit Less.  

   Did you know that the amount of time you spend sitting increases your risk for cardiovascular disease and is associated with other adverse health issues? A study on over 15,000 people showed that, even if you are moderately active, the amount of time you spend sitting increases your risk for many deliterious health outcomes. While many of us need to sit for work and for many other parts of our day, this begs the question of how can we lead a more active lifestyle throughout our day-to-day lives? More simply, what are the daily opportunities to subsitute sitting with something more active? Lucky for you, we have compiled a list below!

Move More.

The American College of Sports Medicine recommends 150-300 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity (such as brisk walking, light cycling, dancing, or water exercise) over the course of a week. There are amazing health benefits attached to this level of activity.

Walking is simple, inexpensive and may be a great way to start. Which of these will you do next week?



Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.
