Doctors have figured out guidelines for sitting and standing at work (so we don’t die)According to The British Journal of Sports Medicine.
Among other horrors, sitting too much can cause heart disease, strained neck, foggy brain, tight hips, poor circulation, mushy abs, inflexible spine, diabetes, and colon cancer. Oh, and it can make you fat.
Warnings about the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle have long been touted by medical experts and the media, but still, many people spend at least eight hours a day in their office chair. In fact, a January 2015 report published in Annals of Internal Medicine found more than half the average person’s waking hours are spent sitting.
Speculate no more.
According to The British Journal of Sports Medicine , there is a magic amount of time to move about (and stave off all those dreadful aforementioned health problems). Their new guidelines, which come from a slew of studies that were reviewed by a panel of international experts, say a combined two to four hours of standing and light activity spread throughout the workday is ideal.
“The key is breaking up your activity throughout the day, Alan Hedge, a professor of ergonomics at Cornell University explained to The Wall Street Journal , which covered the journal’s findings. “Sitting all day and standing all day are both bad for you,” he said.
Hedge had slightly more specific recommendations, saying that for every half hour at work, employees should strive to sit for 20 minutes, stand for eight minutes, and then move around and stretch for two minutes.
That seems a bit hard to remember, so maybe try to keep this in mind in order to encourage yourself to move around: standing burns one-half to one calorie more a minute than sitting, which adds up to as many as 240 additional calories in four hours. Now that’s motivation.
