This is a dense infographic so I’ll just let it speak for itself.
Sitting too much leads to:
- Poor posture
- Achy and painful muscles and joints
- Poor digestion
- Less energy
- Decreased cognition and memory
- Decreased strength in muscles
- Disc damage and sciatica
It’s time to get up and move! Sitting is our modern day epidemic. Research shows it is actually equally damaging to smoking (Yes. You read that correctly).
Get up every 20 minutes for 1 minute. Set a timer if you have to. Go for a walk to the water cooler or bathroom. Do a few stretches and get some mobility in those joints. Your body will thank you later.
If you’re looking for ways to improve your health, look no further. At Yorkdale Wellness, we focus on your health on many different levels. From a neurological standpoint we look at how your brainwaves are allowing your body to adapt, respond and recover from stressful situations. From a physical standpoint we look at how your posture is damaging your joints, weakening your muscles and causing multiple overlying dysfunctions throughout your body. From there we aim to improve your overall health with brain based treatments, strengthening and rehabilitation of muscles and re-patterning neuromuscular dysfunctions.
