Sitting All Day is Killing You

Lifehacker recently came out with an article detailing how much sitting all day is hurting your body, and what you can do to counteract it. Of course, the number one tip is to not sit as much. And who wouldn’t heed their advice, when you’re losing up to seven years of productive life and becoming more susceptible to certain forms of cancer?

Along with this article, they detail the ways in which your body reacts to the physical action of sitting, how you can arbitrarily add more walking to your daily routine (take the stairs, park in the back of the parking lot, etc.), and how to measure your sit/stand ratio to determine where you stand (pun totally intended).

Check below the fold for the full infographic detailing “The Truth About Sitting Down”.
