Why Is This Important?
Because we like to sit. At work, at home, on planes — and sitting down all the time is not just unnatural, it’s bad for your body.
Long Story Short
New research has found that ambulating for an extra two minutes every hour might just be enough to rescue you from always-seated slovenliness.
We spend an inordinate amount of our modern lives sitting down. Right now, you are probably doing just that. You’re either slouched at work browsing The Best Website Ever, slouched on your crowded commute wondering ‘How did I end up with this life,’ or slouched on the couch at home trying to use Tinder judiciously but really, you just end up swiping right on everybody because after two hours of no matches, it’s time to apply desperate math.
