Harmful Effects of Prolonged Sitting

As we begin a new work week, sitting at a desk in front of computer all day… 

Think about the health costs prolonged sitting  can have on our bodies, and stand up and move!

For instance,

Walk to your co-worker’s desk instead of sending email,

Print documents to a device across the room,

Sit on a stability ball instead of regular chair,

to name a few!

  1. I’ve been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever
    before.
