I'm a computer programmer. I try to get up and around once every 30 minutes. But sometimes I sit there for up to two or three hours when really concentrating. I have no clue how to fix that. Also, I do reddit a lot. I have not seen statistics for it, but I am sure that is shortening my life too
What a BS article, there are no facts, no evidence, no testing, no science behind any of the claims.
Of course sitting for extended periods of time isn't great, but if they wanna publish an article, at least have facts.
Obviously we need recess as adults like we did as kids.
Every 2 hours a bell rings and we go outside and climb on the monkey bars.
How early? This article doesn't really show anything.
I'd love to spend 80 minutes a day taking breaks, but it turns out I still have to get work done. So it'd be nice to know exactly what the risk is, and what "early death" is.
and standing too long is hard on your heart.
moderation is key
