In fact, the jury has supporting research and studies that prove this is indeed fact, and it is hardly a surprise to anyone these days. If you still have your doubts, feel free to check out the science that backs up all of those claims.
Society has been made aware of the many ways that sitting for long periods of time can negatively impact your life, to the point of shortening lifespans. Not only does sitting a lot mean you are not getting your blood pumping or strengthening your muscles, but if you combine it with staring at a computer, you also can experience worsening vision. One of the most noticeable, at least right away, symptoms of sitting a lot, especially if you are using an old or inappropriate office chair for you, is the tension and aches in your back, neck, and shoulders.
What is up with that? Well, most people are not sitting correctly when they are at work or sitting anywhere really. Most people are slouching over and this puts pressure all over your body. The more you sit, incorrectly especially, the weaker your muscles get that you need to keep your body upright and in the proper position.
If you aren’t using an ergonomic chair that helps to support your back and body in all the appropriate places, you are probably going to experience some aches and pains throughout your body. The right support is vital to a healthy spine and preventing strained and tired muscles.
