8 Bad Things That Happen From Sitting Down All Day
1. Leaky veins. Sitting all day keeps the veins in your legs under high pressure all the time, blood tends to pool there.
And THAT causes proteins and fluids to LEAK OUT into the surrounding tissue, which causes leg ulcers and other problems.
2. High blood sugar. If you're not moving, your muscles aren't working. That makes them less effective at absorbing glucose from the blood, and more insulin resistant . . . which can eventually lead to type 2 diabetes.
3. Constipation. Long sedentary periods tend to reduce the amount of contractions in your gut . . . so the stuff that's in there just STAYS there.
4. Headaches. Slumping all day at a desk puts strain on your neck muscles. And it can affect the nerves in your neck and face
5. Bad knees. Sitting all day makes your leg muscles weaker . . . and that means they're not available to take stress off your knee joints.
6. Brain fog. You need to move your muscles for good circulation. If blood isn't flowing in your body, it's not getting to your brain either. And then you don't think as clearly.
7. Colon cancer. A study in Australia found that people who spent more than ten years in sed’-en-tary sednˌterē jobs were much more likely to develop colon cancer . . . even if they exercised regularly during their free time.
8. Slipped discs. If your spine stays still all day, the discs between your vertebrae are constantly under pressure, which makes them slip out more easily after sudden movements
