Turns out sitting is the new age smoking. And if you are doing it for more than 55 hours a week then it can lead to some major health risks. Today’s work culture revolves around a sedentary lifestyle. You are plopped in the chair for hours, giving rise to lack of circulation in your legs, leading to lethargy and sluggishness. The effects of the sedentary lifestyle are manifold. Obesity, slip disc, backache and irregular blood pressure are common diseases you are prone to. Lack of exercise also leads to muscle atrophy and weakening of the immune system. Research has shown that leading a sedentary lifestyle can lead to severe menopausal activity.

Although being desk bound cannot be avoided, some low impact movements around the office can be focused on. Take a stroll after lunch, pick up own print or tea, take the stairs to your floor or simply walk to work if possible.

There are numerous preventive measures, and organizations today are thoughtful and offer in house screenings and checkups for women. They promote active travel, walkathons, walking challenges among coworkers and periodical marathons. Some organizations also have an in house sports centre, gymnasium and activity workstations that encourage movement within the workplace. Despite this there are many women who fall prey to the sedentary lifestyle and are not able to manage diseases and their symptoms well.
