New health trends are all over the place. Decrease your sugar intake. Increase your exercise. Avoid carbohydrates. That’s what experts like the World Health Organization, FOD Volksgezondheid and Pascale Naessens are telling you to do.
Lately, one topic in particular has been getting more and more attention: sitting. We are all sitting too much and for too long.
"The solution to this problem is self-evident: you can simply work while standing up."
Does tour current workday feature 8 straight hours of sitting? Give standing up a chance! When you quit smoking, you don’t necessarily have to do it cold turkey, and the same goes for sitting. Just move to a standing desk for one hour a day to break the habit.
Don’t be afraid to stand up and take an oath to stand up a bit more!
