As defined by wikipedia – Sedentary lifestyle is a medical term used to denote a type of lifestyle with no or irregular physical activity. If you are involved in LESS than 30 minutes of VIGOROUS exercise 3x per week, you are considered sedentary. Do you fall into this category? And no…taking a stroll to walk the dog, doing a bar crawl, and walking around the mall does not count.
A lack of physical activity is one of the leading causes of PREVENTABLE deaths worldwide and is estimated to cause 1.9 million deaths worldwide. A sedentary lifestyle and lack of physical activity can contribute to or be a risk factor for:
* Cardiovascular disease
* High blood pressure
Sound like something you want hanging over your head for the rest of your life? Then take charge and get exercising.
