For most of us, sitting is the number one activity we do. We sit when we work. We sit while commuting. We sit during our leisure time. And with the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re probably sitting even more. All this sitting can be bad for your health
In this podcast, I’m joined by Dr. Stephanie Prince Ware (Twitter: @SPrinceWare) who is a Research Scientist at the Public health Agency of Canada. For more than a decade, her research has focused on sedentary behaviours such as sitting, why people are active or inactive, and ways to get people moving more and sitting less.
During this podcast, Stephanie discusses how much people actually sit in a day (you’ll be surprised), what sitting does to your body and the health hazards. She will also provide some simple tips on how a few little actions can reduce the amount you sit and improve your health.
