An Active Lifestyle Over Sitting

An Active Lifestyle Over Sitting

Many journals stress the importance of developing active lifestyles, however, having a sedentary lifestyle is heavily amplified as it makes up the vast majority of our day.

Studies suggest that excessive levels of sedentary time have been linked to many diseases. Except for a person's own perception, it is equally important to measure one's own subjective well-being because how an individual feels about their own health may not always align with what their bodies may demonstrate.

The Relationship Between Sedentary Behavior and Subjective Well-Being
  1. Those who are excessively sedentary were correlated to having poor hedonic well-beings;
  2. There are different contexts of sitting in which yield varying feelings and judgments in regards to one's subjective well-being -- such as when one sits to watch TV carries different associations as to when one sits to socialize;
  3. Lastly, how much an individual sits relative to how much they usually sit places a greater impact on their well-being rather than the total amount of sitting.
