Most wellness and fitness experts agree that our human meat sack bodies are not really suited for all the sitting we do in our modern, convenience-laden lifestyles. There are a ton of studies that have linked the steep increase in sedentary time to the steep increase in the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Let’s look at what the science says.Continue reading “Should you Ditch the Chair? A case for “active rest””
