30 minutes of daily movement is better than none but we are kidding ourselves to believe that is enough to improve health and prevent disease, the science just does not back that up.
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) April 04, 2012
Today is National Walking Day. Established by the American Heart Association, National Walking Day encourages employees to get out of the office and walk 30 minutes for their health. The problem for most Americans today and for the rest of the year is finding time to escape the confines of their cubicles to walk. Compounding the problem, 30 minutes of walking a day falls far short of the goals for a healthy lifestyle. TrekDesk Treadmill Desks offers a suggestion: National Sitting Day.
National Walking Day is designed to bring attention to the fact that a mere 30 minutes of walking a day can have a positive impact on health. TrekDesk CEO, Steve Bordley cautions that bit of good news should come with a disclaimer. “30 minutes of daily movement is better than none but we are kidding ourselves to believe that is enough to improve health and prevent disease, the science just does not back that up.”
Many scientists now agree that remaining healthy is dependent upon remaining upright and active as much as possible during the day. “I would feel much better if we had a National Sitting Day which encouraged only 30 minutes of sitting each day, we have this all backwards,” stated Bordley.
