 Know the Habits That Can Make You Unproductive #infographic

Do you have to sit on your laptop the whole day while you are working? If so, the risk of serious health conditions could be higher. Researchers have found that sitting all day may increase your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, tighten your hip flexors and increase knee and back pain. In short, excessive sitting and standing was associated with increased immorality of both males and females. Additionally, an increased risk of varicose veins, poor circulation and even heart failure involved standing working days. In this modern world you can alternate between sitting and standing but this is not a substitute for exercise.

Why Sitting and Standing Long is Unproductive:

What happens if we sit on our chair all day for 9.6 hours? One of the conditions of wellbeing is strained back, which applies to 10 per cent of the world's population each year. It follows; the Back Pain, which is the most frequent reason for all low productivity. Heart disease is the leading cause affecting 200 per cent of people with the most sedentary lifestyle but those who don't. An extra 2 hours of sitting each day is attributed to eight per cent of the risk of colon cancer. Lower back pain affects 9.4 per cent of the world's population. In the United States, 30 per cent of adults complain of some joint pain.Varicose veins are evident in 25% of women, and 15% of men.

What happens after:
Several Hours of Sitting or Standing: Strained Neck: 

Cranning the neck for a few hours will lead to tight trapezius muscles, leading to a pain in the neck.

Sore Shoulders: The Trapezius muscles connect the neck and shoulders; once the neck slouches, the shoulders fall along with it.

Upper Back pain: Poor posture can strain one of the twelve vertebrae to the upper back causing back pain.

Lower back pain: the area of the lumber supports the upper body weight while sitting for a long time; the disks get squeezed and lack blood circulation, supplying nutrients.

Months on: 

Joint Compression: The correlation of sedentary life with an increased risk of osteoarthritis. Compressing a joint is like squeezing a sponge-squeezing body fluids out of the joint spaces.

Swollen legs: fluid build-up triggers leg edema; inactivity means that the muscles can not pump blood back to the heart.

Years later:

 Varicose Veins: sitting or standing for an extended period slows the blood circulation, pooling the blood in the legs.

Heart disease: 
The excessive sitting reduces blood flow, burns less fat, and causes blockage of the arteries.

Colon Cancer:
Studies have linked cancer of the colon to an extended sitting.

What are we going to do?

Do you like gymnastics?  Standing up for minutes is better than doing an exercise for 32 minutes straight. Yet sometimes exercise isn't even enough; every 20 to 30 minutes we have to maintain and check our posture. It is beneficial to switch between sitting and standing too. Take off work breaks, walk and stretch.

Neither sitting nor standing the whole day is good for our well-being. The experts agree on this one; they take frequent breaks to walk along the way and stretch our muscles out. Tracking the posture, maintaining the body's upright position over time requires considerable muscle exertion causing strain in the back and neck. Gravity pulses down to the bottom of the blood. Then, muscles try to pump it back to the heart in one long compression to hold a person standing. That is normal blood distribution. Adequate blood circulation is required to prevent the blood from pooling in the legs.
