WHAT HAPPENS TO THE BODY IF YOU SIT 12 HOURS A DAY
Our health is destroyed every hour spent in a sitting position.
Sitting leads to bone and muscular dystrophy, heart disease, obesity, diabetes mellitus and overall general pain.
Let's talk about the facts
Our body is designed to move, not sit.The anatomical structure of this fact fully proves. In our body a huge number of joints, skeletal muscles. Our species was able to stand up, got elastic skin and a lot of other buns that allow you to move as freely as possible.
Do you remember moments when you had an unpleasant burning sensation or cramps in your calves? This is due to the fact that your blood has accumulated in the veins due to a sedentary lifestyle, man. Do you really have to say why this is bad? Well, let's say - a stroke.
What are the laziest parts of the body while sitting? Buttocks and calves, of course.They do nothing, they just force the body to wither away.
Fortunately, you can minimize the harm of sitting at a desk. You just need to sometimes get up from a chair or chair to stretch your legs. So you can prevent harmful consequences, although if you don’t want your muscles to finally atrophy, then it’s better to sign up for the hall.
Predisposition to fullness
It would seem that this is understandable, but the point is not even in the absence of physical exertion, but in a special enzyme that works worse if you stay up in one place for many hours. This enzyme is calledlipoprotein lipase- it is located on the walls of our vessels and is responsible for the breakdown of fats that move through our blood.
When you sit for a long time, the processing of fat in the vessels is much slower, which leads to obesity. And we have not yet begun to say that the rate of burning kilocalories in a sitting position decreases to 1 per minute, which is very low for you to stop being so fat.
It may seem to you that it is easy and pleasant to sit, but for your nerve cells the whole process is like torture, because an unnatural posture provokes pinching of the nerves, which can lead to pain in the whole body.
Spasms are inevitable if you sit in one position for a long time. Most often, we feel them in the shoulders, lower back and neck.
You also deprive your body of all evolutionary advantages - blood circulation is disturbed, which is why nerve cells do not receive the necessary amount of energy that they need.
