As we face weeks in lockdown, we seem to be sitting a whole lot more. Sitting for over six hours for days can cause a set of health problems. It can create cardio-metabolic problems and create issues with blood glucose levels or insulin levels, heart health, and disease risk.
However, we can take steps to avoid the negative consequences of a sedentary lifestyle while social distancing.
Set a timer once an hour to remind you to move. Get up and move your body, walk up and down the stairs, or take a brisk loop around the block.
The movement needs to be reasonably active and needs to get you out of breath. Afterward, you will feel more productive.
Most people can find an activity that they enjoy. It could be walking the dog, doing pilates, or playing in the garden.
Find the activity you like and get value from and do that.
Sitting all day can drive lower back and shoulder pain. Typing away all day can cause carpal tunnel and strain the wrists. Some pointers to address these issues:
At home, we are tempted to graze on empty-nutrient snacks.
Maintain an eating structure. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and nutrient-rich foods.
Exercise is not just a workout in the morning and at the end of the day. One single workout can't counteract a day of sitting still.
Quick hits of spontaneous activity throughout the day can lead to significant health gains. It can also boost your mood and contribute to positive mental health.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
