Why the Sedentary Lifestyle is Dangerous
By definition, the sedentary lifestyle is characterized by spending a majority of your time sitting or lying down with little or no exercise. Some experts consider this as dangerous as smoking.
We sit when we eat breakfast, sit for the morning commute, most of us sit at a desk all day, sit for lunch, sit for the evening commute, sit for dinner, sit for television or computer time.
Then, we end our day by lying down and sleeping for 6 to 8 hours every evening.

The doctor glances at your medical chart; looks up at you, then quickly back to the chart. “How can this be? I don’t know what you’re doing but the results are amazing. Let’s cut your blood pressure medication in half and retest you in 6 months!”
For people who may be predisposed to certain health conditions, walking can reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, back issues, Alzheimer’s disease, and other dementias.
Walking is also an antidote for being overweight and obese. These conditions are known to increase blood pressure, and high blood pressure is the leading cause of strokes.
Excess weight also increases your chances of developing other problems linked to strokes, including high cholesterol, high blood sugar, and heart disease.

What people are saying about Walking for Health and Fitness:
“Walking for Health and Fitness has given me both the education and motivation I never even knew I was missing! I work close to 9+ hrs, where sitting at a desk all day would leave me with barely any energy to cook dinner. Now, whether it be “pleasure walking” or “high intensity walking”, it keeps me energized and definitely helps me de-stress after a long day. I make sure to start or end each day with these very important steps. Thanks again for opening my eyes to all the benefits walking can bring!”
