Staying Fit with Office Exercise Machines
If you find yourself spending too much time sitting at your office desk and are worried about the long-term damage a sedentary lifestyle may be causing to your body, there is a solution. Office exercise machines allow us to stay active while remaining productive. With growing evidence of the drastic health consequences of sitting idle for hours at a time, there is no better time than the present to invest in an office exercise machine. Today, we will discuss the benefits of regular office exercise, as well as a few machines that could work for you.
Risks of Prolonged Inactivity
Extended sitting and inactivity can be harmful, and most of us realize that. However, you may not know the absolute havoc that regular periods of extended inactivity can cause on your body. Physical inactivity has been shown to contribute in a big way to several health conditions.
- Less active and less fit people have a greater risk of developing high blood pressure.
- Inactivity increases your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
- Studies have shown that people who regularly experience prolonged inactivity are more likely to develop coronary heart disease than those who are active. Even when researchers accounted for smoking, alcohol, and drug abuse.
- Inactivity can lead to an increased risk of anxiety and depression.
- Physical inactivity can increase the risk of certain types of cancer.
These are just some of the risks of inactivity, and the fact is more and more adults work in office environments that promote long periods of inactivity. So what can we do to avoid becoming a health statistic?
