Most of us know smoking, poor diet, and heavy drinking can cause serious health effects. Not as many people are aware that long periods of sitting, especially as a habit, can be just as damaging to the human body. Humanity was not designed by nature to be sitters, yet in the modern era we spend an ever increasing amount of time planted in chairs. Some exercise can help blunt the health effects, especially some small but regular stretch or brief walk breaks.
