All of us areВ aware that sitting all day damages your body.
Inappropriate sitting is known asВ вЂњSitting DiseaseвЂќ. This termВ has been coined by the scientific communityВ and it is commonly used when referring to an overly or incorrect sitting.
The side effect of too long sitting is affected fromВ every part of our body. Starting fromВ organ damageВ (likeВ heart disease, over productive pancreas and even colon cancer) and muscle degeneration (mushy abs & limp glutes) to foggy brains, strained necks and back ache, sitting at your desk all day increases your mortality risk and has a detrimental effect on your overall health.
The question is: what can we do to avoid this?
The answer is very simple: Sit better.
Proper sitting postureВ is one of the most important things you can do for your body.
You can do is to make sure you are optimizing the wayВ that your work place is set up.
Also make sureВ your back is supported and your feet are resting comfortably. Then check that your monitor is an arms length away at eye level. If not, move things around a bit so you’re more comfortable.
You may want to consider is to getВ a simple back supporter. ItВ allows you to effortlessly sit in perfect posture on even the simplest chair. A back supporterВ acts like a simple belt mechanism that straps you into perfect posture and doesnвЂ™t let you slump and slouch.
