Sitting-Longevity Link, 3

Srinivasan Beddhu, MD, of the University of Utah School of Medicine in Salt Lake City, reportedly found the results interesting, “…because the current national focus is on moderate or vigorous activity. To see that light activity had an association with lower mortality is intriguing."

I used to stand periodically when doing computer work, alternating standing as a compensation for so much sitting. Now I’m on board with walking (gardening? not so much; cleaning? only if absolutely necessary!)—even if I have to set the timer to remind myself that an hour has flown by and I need to do 2 minutes on my treadmill! It’s just amazing how time flies when I’m doing something I really enjoy such as writing . . .   Part 4 tomorrow.
