Use it Or Lose It

The risks of a sedentary lifestyle are well documented. According to ParticipACTION, being physical inactive on a daily basis can lead to an increased risk of obesity and an increased risk of chronic diseases like diabetes. In fact, according to research by the University of Leicester in England, inactive people are at 147% increased risk of heart attack or stroke, 112% risk of developing diabetes, and 49% increased risk of “premature mortality.” Sedentary behaviour includes sitting at work, vegging out watching television, lounging on the computer or playing video games, and even activities that are mentally stimulating but physically inactive, like reading.
