Know the habits that can make you unproductive
Do you sit all day while working on your laptop? If yes, this might lead to a higher risk of severe health conditions. Researchers have found out that sitting all day can increase your risk of suffering from type 2 diabetes, tighten your hip flexors, and increase knee and back pain. In short, prolonged sitting and standing are associated with increased immorality in men and women. Moreover, standing workdays have also associated with a higher risk of varicose veins, poor circulation, and even heart failure. In this modern world, you can alternate between sitting and standing, but this does not replace exercise.

Why Prolonged Sitting and Standing is Unproductive:

What happens when we sit 9.6 hours each day working on our system? One of the health condition is Strained neck, which leads to 10% of the world’s population each year. Following this; the Back Pain, which is the most common reason for low productivity in everyone. Heart disease is the main reason which affects 200% of people with the most sedentary lifestyle except for the ones who do not. 8% of  Colon cancer risk is due to sitting of an extra 2 hours each day. 9.4% of the world's population is affected by Lower Back Pain. 30% of U.S. adults complain about some joint pain. 25% of the women and 15% of men have visible varicose veins.

What happens after: 

Few Hours of Sitting or Standing:


Strained Neck: Craning your neck for a few hours can result in tight trapezius muscles, which leads to neck pain.

Sore Shoulders: The Trapezius muscles connect the neck and the shoulders; once the neck slouches, the shoulders go with it.

Upper Back pain: Poor posture can strain one of the twelve vertebrae that result in upper back pain.

Lower Back Pain: the lumber region supports the weight of the upper body when sitting for a long time; the discs get compress and lose access to blood, delivering nutrients.

Months later:

Joint Compression: A higher risk of osteoarthritis is associated with sedentary life. Compressing a joint is like squeezing a sponge – the spaces in the joints squeeze out body fluids.

Swollen Legs: the build-up of fluid causes leg edema; because of inactivity, the muscles are unable to pump blood back to the heart.

Years later:

Varicose Veins: sitting or standing for an extended period slows blood circulation, pooling the blood in the legs.

Heart Disease: Prolonged sitting slows down the blood flow, burns less fat, and allow it to clog the arteries.

 Colon Cancer: Studies have linked prolonged sitting with colon cancer.

What can we do?

Exercise?  Standing up times for minutes is healthier than exercising for straight 32 minutes. But sometimes exercising is even not enough; we need to balance and check our posture every 20 to 30 minutes. To switch between sitting and standing is also beneficial. Take work breaks, walk around and stretch.

Neither sitting nor standing all day is great for our health. The experts agree on this one; taking frequent breaks to walk and stretch our muscles in the way to go. Monitor your posture, keeping the upright body position over time requires considerable muscular efforts which causes muscular strain in the back and neck. Gravity pulls blood down into the feet. Then muscles try to pump it back to the heart in one long compression to keep a person standing. This is proper blood circulation. Adequate blood circulation is necessary so that to avoid blood pooling in the legs.
