With the ever increasing rise of digital technology, as well as administrative and desk jobs having become a primary job type, sitting has become the most common posture in the workplace and the one we tend to adapt for most of our day (studies show most desk workers spend an average of 10 hours per day sitting).
What is so bad about this for our health?
It turns out, a lot.
The human body and skeleton isn’t designed to be sitting, immobile, inactive, and hunched over all day. Its actually designed to stand, move, run, walk, bend, sprint, stretch, essentially to be in action the majority of the time.
The way we have developed in terms of daily use of our bodies (or, not) is in stark contrast to both our optimal health and the ways our bodies are meant to function and move.
