Most modern people lead sedentary lifestyles to varying degrees. Some do not realize that their movement is too little and this can have a harmful effect on their he alth. Sedentary lifestyle and immobility increase many times the risk of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and all these conditions are associated with a higher risk of mortality.
If you haven't thought about whether your lifestyle is too sedentary, there are symptoms you can tell by. They will help you change your daily life and improve your he alth.
You do not meet the he alth recommendations
According to the World He alth Organization, each person should average 150 to 300 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity each week. If it's below these he althy limits, then you're not moving to your full potential and your lifestyle is stuck.
You spend half your waking hours sitting still
If you spend most of the day sitting in a chair and not moving, this is a big enough factor for immobility. In order to improve your he alth, you need to allocate your time so that during the waking hours in which you are active, you move half of the time. Get up and take small breaks. Go on foot. Do not use elevators or escalators. All of these small lifestyle changes improve physical activity.
You don't sleep well
Movement is the most natural mechanism for improving sleep. If you move regularly, do exercises, walk or in short - physically tire your body, this will have a beneficial effect on your sleep.
