We especially the bloggers sit hours together on our computer chairs to finish our assignments.   Many others spend  time by sitting on their sofa sets to watch TV etc.  Likewise most office goers spend majority of their time stting on their chairs to finish their task.  The latest research says that “Sitting is Killing You” .  This is no doubt a shocking  news to all!  But the truth is that  the continuous or long sitting gives us trouble, say even more trouble to our healthy body. In this infographic, the author emphasizes the seriousness due to long sitting.

With the advent of Television, Computers, and other Desk Jobs we are sitting more than we are sleeping! The Washington Post reports says that, “It is estimated that it’s 9.3 hours a day, more than the average sleeping time of 7.7 hours. Also please read my feedback there.

People with sitting jobs have twice the rate of cardiovascular disease as people with other jobs.

For people who have sitting jobs, it is inevitable, but the extra hours after that is more trouble giving.

    There are not many people who take this alert seriously and just ignore it for their perish. As it is scientifically proved that sitting on a long period of time is dangerous to our health. Thanks for sharing this great alert thru this post. Though it is inevitable to sit on chairs for an office goer, still we can take some precautions as mentioned in the post as well as through the videos.
    This is my first visit to your wonderful website, I am looking forward to reading more such health-related articles on your site.
    Thanks again.
