LONDON (WKOW) – How much of your day do you spend sitting? Well, if you get up and move around, you could add years to your life, according to a new study in the British Medical Journal.
Researchers say you could add two years to your life you reduce the time you spend sitting to less than three hours a day. And limiting TV time to two hours a day could add on more than a year.
The study does not establish a direct cause-and-effect relationship between sitting, TV watching and death. But the evidence does suggest an association between shortened lives and sedentary activities, like TV watching and driving, is adding up.
