Know the Habits That Can Make You Unproductive #infographic

Should you sit on your laptop all day while you work? If so, this could result in a higher risk of serious health conditions. Researchers have found that sitting all day can increase your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, tighten your hip flexors, and increase pain in your knees and back. In short, prolonged sitting and standing are linked to increased male and female immorality. In addition, standing working days have included an increased risk of varicose veins, poor circulation and even heart failure. You can alternate between sitting and standing in this modern world but this is not a replacement for exercise.

Why Sitting and Standing Long is Unproductive:


Which happens if we sit 9.6 hours on our machine every day? One of the health conditions is strained back, which every year corresponds to 10 per cent of the world's population. It follows; the Back Pain, which is the most common reason for low productivity in all. Heart disease is the main cause that affects 200 per cent of people with the most sedentary lifestyle except those who don't. Eight per cent of the risk of colon cancer is attributed to an additional 2 hours of sitting each day. Lower back pain affects 9.4 per cent of the world's population. Thirty per cent of adults in the United States complain of some joint pain. Varicose veins are visible in 25 per cent of women and 15 per cent of men.

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

Cranning your neck for a couple of hours can lead to tight trapezius muscles, leading to neck pain.

Sore Shoulders: The neck and shoulders are connected by the Trapezius muscles; once the neck slouches, the shoulders come along with it.

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

Lower back pain: the lumber region supports the upper body weight while sitting for a long time; the disks get compressed and lose access to blood, providing nutrients.

Months on:


Joint Compression: Sedentary life is associated with a higher risk of osteoarthritis. Compressing a joint is like squeezing a sponge-the joint spaces squeeze out body fluids.

Swollen legs: fluid build-up causes leg edema; the muscles can not pump blood back to the heart because of inactivity.

Years later: 

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

Heart disease: The prolonged sitting slows down the flow of blood, burns less fat, and allows the arteries to clog.

 Colon Cancer: Studies have linked colon cancer to prolonged sitting.


What could we do?


Gymnastics?  Standing up for minutes is healthier than doing straight 32 minutes of exercise. Yet exercise is not even enough at times; we must maintain and test our posture every 20 to 30 minutes. Switching between sitting and standing is also helpful. Take breaks from work, walk and stretch.

For our wellbeing, neither sitting nor standing the whole day is pleasant. The experts agree on this one; they take frequent breaks to stroll and stretch out our muscles along the way. Track the posture, maintaining the upright position of the body over time requires considerable muscle exertion that causes muscle strain in back and neck. Gravity pulls down blood to bottom. Then, in one long compression, muscles try to pump it back to the heart to keep a person standing. That is the normal distribution of blood. Adequate circulation of the blood is necessary to avoid pooling of blood in the legs.
