If you are like me you most probably spent you day sitting in front of a computer doing a constant conversation with it, trying to negotiate what's needed to be done and how. If you are like me you will definitely agree that times goes by very fast while computing. So fast that sometimes you realize that you haven't stand up from your chair at all or you have stand up just couple of times. You will definitely agree with me that this is very bad. Still we continue to do it like nothing is going to happen us. Well this is not true. It will, and it is going to hurt. Lets face the fact:
MU study finds that sitting may increase risk of disease
MU professor offers solution: just stand up!
COLUMBIA, Mo. – Most people spend most of their day sitting with relatively idle muscles. Health professionals advise that at least 30 minutes of activity at least 5 days a week will counteract health concerns, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity that may result from inactivity. Now, researchers at the University of Missouri-Columbia say a new model regarding physical activity recommendations is emerging. New research shows that what people do in the other 15 and a half hours of their waking day is just as important, or more so, than the time they spend actively exercising.
That's very disturbing. Don't you think? To prove my point just read the Scott Hanselman's first hand experience. I read this couple of months ago but just recently have thought more seriously about it. As said in the post don't just read it, but step ahead and donate. During Christmas I received an $80 amazon gift from my employer. There are some troubles purchasing goods from amazon and shipping them to Bulgaria so I haven't decided what to do with them since today. I intend to donate all of it to the cause to FIGHT DIABETES.
Personally what can we do to fight diabetes. There is one simple, very strong word that can fight any disease.
Jogging, Swimming, Climbing, Cycling, Surfing you name it. Pick the name of the game and stick with it. For me this is Bodybuilding. Yeah baby! Go hard or go home!
Next time you wonder where to do your Team Building - do it in the gym. That's what I call Team Building through Bodybuilding.
Stop wasting your time right now or you will end up at the forefront of the evolution chain.
But if you are there already it is not late. It is never late. "Just stand up!".
See you at the gym.
