The average sitting time for Japanese people is 7 hours.

This is the longest time among the 20 countries surveyed.


According to the World Health Organization (WHO), a study found that sitting for 11 hours increases the risk of heart disease, brain disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer and dementia by 40% compared to those who sit for 4 hours. It seems that there is.


how many hours a day do you sit

“I work from 9:00 to 5:00, but if I work overtime, it will be about 10 hours in total?”

Isn’t there a lot of people who say?


For us Japanese living in modern society, isn’t “work = sitting”?

This is not limited to salaried workers.


The same goes for housewives.

Even those who are shopping or doing household chores are sitting most of the time.


It’s the same with children.

I sit all the time at school, but after school, I sit at cram school until night.


That means we spend most of our day sitting.

In other words, our life consists of “sitting”.


In that case, we can also say that “quality of life = quality of sitting”?

A recent study found that every hour of sitting reduces lifespan by 23 minutes.

That’s how sitting affects life.


Even if it is an undeniable fact that sitting for a long time is not good, if the bad influence can be reduced by the way you sit, wouldn’t it be better?


So what is the best way to sit without straining your body?



How to sit without straining your body?

① Get up often


Humans are not yet made to sit.

Humans are made to walk.

It will take 20,000 years to evolve to sit.


So no matter how hard you try, as long as you sit, you will get sick.

How to deal with this is to “stand up and move your body regularly”.


If possible, it is desirable to get up and walk a little once every 30 minutes.

However, for those who work in a company, won’t your boss notice you wandering around in such a short amount of time? Isn’t that what you mean?


Still, please stand up at least once every hour.

You can even just stand and twist and stomp your feet for 5 seconds.

It just resets your body.
