Sitting down for brief periods can help us recover from stress or recuperate from exercise. But these days, our lifestyles make us sit much more than we move around. Are our bodies built for such a sedentary existence and what are the hidden risks of sitting down.
There are opportunities for a little fitness everywhere – even at the office. Just 5 minutes of exercise in any public place can be fun, entertaining and surprisingly simple. Even doing a few pelvic tilts to get your very own ab workout whilst sitting at your desk will take the pressure off your lower back and give you a workout without having to go to the gym.
