What an amazing time to be alive. You can play music by telling a robot what you want. You don’t even have to touch your earphones to skip to the next song or be given a news update. You can consume meals that are already made for you. Getting to work is no sweat off your brow as even your car can drive you to work now! It’s amazing the world we live in today. But, could our lifestyle choices be harming you’re well being? On the surface it might not seem so, yet, if you look a little deeper, something very worrying is happening.
The epidemic of sedentary living
To live in the modern world, you don’t have to raise your heart rate over 100. You can catch a train to work, drive, get on an electric scooter, or board a bus. You really don’t need to run or even jog. Decades ago, people had to cycle miles and miles to work. They had to walk everywhere and they had to run for the train or bus when it arrived because if they missed it, they would need to wait another hour or so. Now, we don’t have these concerns. This isn’t the only reason that has led to an epidemic of sedentary living. So what can you do to keep the pounds off your body and keep yourself healthy? Choose a day in the working week. That day, you will need to find a different way into work than you normally would go. Get up early to walk, buy a bicycle or if you can, or perhaps get up an hour early to go for a jog, before you go to work.
