Sitting is killing you! An #infographic to promote exercise & activity

Sitting Down Chair

Are you sitting down? Statistically speaking, you probably are. But that’s not necessarily a good thing. In fact, the long-term effects of prolonged sitting day-in and day-out are not good for your personal health. And although some of us who are confined to a desk job have no choice but to sit all day, there are ways you can break free from the dangers of being stuck in the chair from 9-5 and get some exercise for better back and body health.

Check out the infographic below for ways you can break out of your chair for better health, even without standing up.

  3. Very interesting stats and information! Is is possible to obtain this infographic (whether it be poster size or something I could hang on my bulletin board)?
