Sit Less, Move more

Studies have shown that sitting 4-6 hours a day or more can be especially dangerous to your health and regular exercise may not be enough to counteract the negative effects of sedentary behavior. “NEAT” activity can be used as a way to move more and improve your health. Non-exercise activity thermogenesis (NEAT) includes non-seated alternatives like standing while watching TV or on the computer, pacing or fidgeting while on the phone, or meeting over a walk or while standing. NEAT activities are beneficial in stimulating the bodies neuromuscular system and in burning extra 300-2,000 calories a day. For those looking to lose or maintain their body weight or regain health, “sit less and move more” is often the answer.
