Myth: Sitting is the new smoking

Myth: Sitting is the new smoking

Let us not demonize normal behavior. It is true that too much physical inactivity is unhealthy, but sitting is not as bad as people make it out to be. It is only leisure-time sitting that is strongly associated with negative health outcomes rather than work-time sitting.

Those who sit actively by getting up every other 15 minutes and so wake up their metabolisms and enjoy better long-term health than those who don't.
