Stand Up - It Could Save Your Life

In July 2013, The Washington Post released, " The message is clear: Sitting for hours at a time might be a health risk regardless of what you do with the rest of your day." Often we don't realize just how long we have been sitting in one position. We are focused on a project or reading a good book and suddenly we realize several hours have gone by! Consider setting a reminder on your watch, on your phone or even on your computer to alert you to stand up or change positions every hour -- it can drastically improve your health!

Here are a few additional tips to increase activity in your daily living:

  • Park a little further away at the store

  • Take the steps at work 

  • Take your pet for a walk

  • Try exercising or stretching during the commercial break of your favorite television show
