According to a report from the National Institutes of Health, adult Americans spend on average 7.7 hours a day engaged in “sedentary behavior”. What’s even more alarming is that the Archives of Internal Medicine found that the risk of premature death grows 15 percent for those who sit eight hours a day! And the risk increases 40 percent for those who sit 11 hours a day compared with those who sit just four hours. Too much sitting can increase the risk of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.
