A nice documentary is “The Truth About Exercise” by Michael Mosley. Through what seemed like a bare minimum of exercise he measurably decreased his risk of becoming diabetic.
So, I have to take more cigarette breaks if I want to stay healthy. Got it.
So…given the minimum distance from the building rules, going up and down stairs, and pacing while doing it…does this mean I should start smoking again?
Actually I think just the one per hour you are already doing (if you really smoke) should do you - see above.
In one trial they sat for three hours without moving their legs.
Do people actually do that? I cross and uncross my legs and switch the direction they’re crossed every few minutes. If I see someone sit for three hours without moving their legs, I’m going to suspect that they’re actually a robot.
I’ve read too many studies, so I think I am rightly critical. The sitting studies showed people who sit a bunch die at higher rates for some reason. This study shows that getting off your ass changes some aspects of your body. These might be completely unrelated.
But I think getting up and moving is a very good thing.
I started using the four/4 floors stairs at work. Sheesh, I am out of shape since I get tired after going up! Down is easy.
