Chronic sitting

According to studies, people who sit for prolonged periods every day are at a higher risk of diabetes, heart ailments, and even some cancers. Your risk of kidney disease is increased by 30% when you spend long periods sitting without moving. If your work entails sitting in your chair for around 8 hours a day, then you should try to follow an active lifestyle at home. Regular exercise or physical activity helps to improve blood pressure and normalize glucose metabolism. Both of these are essential for maintaining appropriate kidney health.  Make it a habit to exercise at least 2-3 times a week and whenever you get a chance to walk around the neighborhood don’t miss it.
