The More You Sit, The Less You Live

The More You Sit, The Less You Live

Seriously, research has shown it. The dangers of “over-sitting” are very real.

Back in 2008, a research study showed that every hour of television watched after the age of 25 reduces the viewer’s life expectancy by 21.8 minutes. And, above four hours a day of sitting can be deemed “risky.”

Fortunately, there is at least one solution for keeping a lot of us with office jobs somewhat active during the day: standing desks. It’s become quite a phenomenon at Steiner Sports. Since the start of the fourth quarter of 2014, half of our staff now has standing desks.

They’re certainly not an end-all, be-all solution to “over-sitting.” At the end of the day, nothing can replace good diet and exercise, but this has been a great way to promote movement around the office.
