Posted: 02.17.2016
A new study suggests that getting up and just walking for two minutes each hour may help offset the negative effects of sitting for a prolonged time. Previous research has linked daily sitting for long hours with higher risk of heart disease, diabetes and premature death. This latest study analyzed data on 3,200 people and found that short periods of low-intensity activities such as walking, housecleaning or gardening seemed to boost longevity. Replacing two minutes of walking lowered risk of premature death by 33% in people who are sedentary for more than half their day
