Sitting for Too Long
It definitely pays to be more active throughout your day. It helps your muscles and joints to be strong and flexible, keeps your circulatory system regular, and boosts your energy levels more often you exercise. So sitting all day is pretty detrimental to your health in the long run. Sitting for long periods can put a lot of pressure on your tail bone and the nerves inside, leading to an increased risk of sciatica. This is where the sciatic nerve that runs down your entire leg feels a pinching sensation, leading to tingling and numbness in your entire limb. Metabolism also slows down when you’re sitting, making it much easier for your body to put on weight. In combination with the reduced amounts of exercise, you could start putting on more pounds than you realize.
