Sitting down on the job

Health – Life & Style Home – theage.com.au: “New Australian research shows that half-an-hour in the gym will not make up for the waist-expanding damage caused by spending the rest of the day sitting.”

Yes, as technology takes over we are spending more time on our backsides and that can squash your insides as well! No wonder we feel tired and uninspired . We are becoming chained to desks and then there is this expectation you will have a car to do this and that …so there isn’t even the time walking to and from public transport. It’s hard to alternate standing and sitting if you are on a computer. We are going to have to think about this because we shall just be creating more absenteeism for ourselves.
