Today’s infographic from greenerideal.com details the potential harms in spending too much of your day sitting down. Other than the obvious (more time sitting = less time for exercise = gaining weight) sitting for prolonged periods can not only increase your risk for diabetes, but for heart disease as well.
On the positive side, if you are required to sit at your job, or say in a class, it is better to sit at a more reclined angle rather than straight up or hunched over. Also, just remember to try and be as active as you can for the environment that you’re in.
