Movement helps our body make the ‘feel good hormones’ and endorphins that are stimulated with activity. The joints thrive on movement, as movement is what causes their self lubrication to continue.
Tight muscles and joint stiffness can turn into difficulty walking, falls, progressive weakness, and joint pain.Studies show we sit more than 51 hours a week. Assuming that we sleep 8 hours a day, that equates to nearly half of our awake time sitting!
Sitting for prolonged periods of time has been linked over and over to changes in our cardiovascular strength, endurance and overall health.
