#Sitting is the New Smoking
by Shape Up America! · July 1, 2015
Too much sitting is hazardous to your health, even if you exercise. Researchers from the University of Toronto reviewed 47 studies and found that people who sat too much had a higher risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and early death. The health risks were greater in adults who did little or no exercise, but even regular exercise didn’t erase the harm from sitting for up to half the day. The more you sit, the greater the risk of dying prematurely from heart disease. And the more difficult it is to manage your weight.
Daily physical activity is good for your health, but it’s not just what’s done in the 30 minutes or one hour of exercise that matters, it’s also the movement that’s done throughout the day, like carrying groceries or getting the mail. These everyday activities get you up and moving and can also benefit your weight.
The calorie-burning from everyday activities and movement is called NEAT or Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis. What counts as NEAT? The activities you do as part of your daily life like walking in your home or workplace, climbing stairs, fidgeting and standing are NEAT. But not intentional exercise like taking a brisk walk or working out in a gym.
In a 2006 study by the Mayo Clinic, researchers compared NEAT in inactive people who were at a healthy weight or obese. Those who were obese spent over 2½ more hours of their day sitting than the others who did more standing and moving. The researchers found that people with the most NEAT activity had the lowest amount of body fat, which can lead to better health. Based on this study, moving more as you go about your daily life can also help you manage your weight.
Shape Up America!® encourages plenty of exercise, especially for people who have lost weight and want to keep it off. If you are a healthy weight, sitting less can help prevent weight gain. But NEAT activities such as doing chores at home instead of sitting and watching TV, and getting up to speak to a coworker at the office burn more calories than calling, emailing or texting.
Bottom Line: For good health and weight control, sit less and move more. Some ideas for work and play:
Get up from your chair for a couple minutes every hour.
Have a “walk and talk” business meeting.
Consider a “standing desk” or a “treadmill desk” to sit less at work.
Stand up and stretch or walk around during TV commercials and while on the phone.
Move to the music on your smart phone or radio and dance away!
Wear a pedometer to count the steps you take each day.
