Medical conditions caused by sitting

With the advent of industrialisation and blue collar jobs, office jobs have become more common. This has increased the number of people who sit for the most part of their days.

Sitting for too long has its dangers.

Metabolic Syndrome: This is a range of conditions (high blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess fat around the waist and stomach) that is linked to sedentary jobs.

Dormant Butt Syndrome: This is a collection of pains around the lower abdomen, knees, and hips after sitting for a long time. This pain develops due to the wasting away of the butt muscles, which support the muscles and nerves of the lower body.

Death Risk: Adults (even non-smokers and non-drinkers) who spend more than two hours in front of a TV are more likely to die from conditions like hypertension, cancer and fat-related diseases.

To decrease the risk, make standing part of your daily routine. Stand when you don’t have to be sitting. Walk around the office in your spare time. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Walk a few meters before taking the bus home. Just incorporate daily active habits into your life.

Well,on its own,sitting for too long is not healthy. One needs to stretch his or her legs at intervals.
