Sedentary harm is terrible, standing desks give you the most effective solution
May 27, 2018

    The World Health Organization report pointed out that more than 2 million people die each year because of sedentary activity.

Sedentary organs are damaged

1. Cardiovascular disease

When you are sedentary, the muscles burn less fat and the blood flows more slowly, which makes it easier for fatty acids to block the heart. Sedentary is associated with high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Sedentary people are twice as likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease as the average person.

2. Overactive pancreas

The pancreas makes insulin, a hormone that can carry glucose to cells to produce energy. However, unused muscles do not respond to insulin, so the pancreas produces too much insulin, which may cause diabetes or other diseases. A 2011 study found that as long as one day of sitting, it will reduce the muscle reaction to insulin.

3. Colon cancer

The study found that sedentary and colon cancer, breast and endometrial cancer. The reason is not clear, but there is a saying that too much insulin will increase cell growth. Another argument is that regular activities promote natural antioxidants to fight free radicals.

Lower body muscle degradation

4. Relaxing belly

When you stand, move or sit, the muscles in your abdomen will make you up. But when you are in a chair, they are not used. Tensed back muscles and loose abdomen form a destructive alliance that will make your waist bow too large and cause back pain problems.

5. Stiff hip joint

Elastic hips help maintain balance, but those who sit for a long time rarely stretch the hip flexors in front of them, making the muscles short and stiff, limiting the range of motion and the distance to stride. The study found that reducing the mobility of the hips is the main reason for the elderly to fall easily.

6. Soft but soft buttocks

Sitting on the hip does not require anything to do with the buttocks muscles. The weakness of the buttocks muscles will hurt your stability, making the ability to push things off and the ability to maintain a strong pace.

7. Leg disorder

The blood circulation of the foot is not good, and long periods of sitting can slow the blood circulation and cause the liquid to accumulate in the legs. From swollen ankles and varicose veins to dangerous blood clots, these problems are called deep vein thrombosis.

8. Cartilage head

Walking and running these activities that need to bear weight and weight will stimulate the growth of bone density in the hip and lower body. The scientists attributed the recent surge in osteoporosis to a lack of patient activity.

Sedentary and Mortality: In an eight-and-a-half-year study, people who watched TV for more than seven hours a day were 61% more likely to die than those who watched TV less than one hour a day.

Problems near the head

9. The drowsy brain

Active muscles drive fresh blood and oxygen into the brain and initiate a variety of chemicals that affect the brain and mood. When we are sedentary, the function of the brain will be slow.

10. Tight neck

If you spend most of your time sitting on a desk and stretching your neck toward the keyboard, or tilting your head and shrugging to support the phone while you are typing, you may pull it. Your cervical spine creates a permanent imbalance.

11. Sore shoulder and back pain

When you hunched, you can't just bend your neck forward, and your shoulders and back muscles can stretch too much, especially the trapezius that connects the neck and shoulders.

Beware of back injuries

12. The spine that loses its elasticity

As we move, the cartilage plate between the spine is like a sponge soaked in blood and nutrition, sometimes expanding and sometimes shrinking. But when we sit for a long time, the cartilage plate will be squeezed unevenly and the collagen around the tendons and ligaments will harden.

13. Intervertebral disc damage

Sedentary people have a greater risk of having a herniated disc. The average person may not know that the normal spinal pressure stands four times more than when lying down. When sitting, the pressure is up to six times. Improper sitting posture will increase the pressure on the spine.

How to solve the sedentary problem for workers?

     Professor Kevin Fenton, head of the UK public health department, said that the benefits of standing are numerous, such as it can improve posture and relieve your back pain; it can speed up your blood circulation and promote cardiovascular health; it can also improve your The mobility of the body allows you to move around.

    In order to prevent sedentary from endangering health, many well-known international companies have replaced traditional desks with standing desks to achieve a relaxed and easy-to-follow job.
