SITTING AROUND CAN AFFECT lifespan as well as health

Post  Badboy on Sun 30 Jun - 0:19

Studies suggest that 6 hours of tv a day can reduce lifespan by about years.
also glucose levels increase in blood.
basically sitting at a desk or on a couch for long periods affect health.

What about sitting at your pc for hours reading and posting on MM?
I think I'm a lost cause á

Me too! My only defence m'lud is that I don't snack between meals.

Since I retired 3 years ago I have been content to vegetate in a darkened room!

Hey! You like beer? Aldi has lots of good beers, like Old Speckled Hen, at 99p a bottle!

Speckled Hen is good but i was buying box's of 18 buds for 10 quid at Tesco's last week,should have bought more as they sold out this week and all my Daughter and her boyfriends mates have just been round for a big barbie and cleaned me out !
Talk about exersize clearing up the garden after that lot.

Personally i am not convinced that being a couch potato takes years off your life,but overeating probably does.

Yes i do like to have a nibble in the evenings.

And it is good to relax,you must stretch out and have your feet level with your heart to make it easy for your blood to circulate.

Also a power nap during the day helps.

Being a fat slob and smoking fags is bad though.

Drink a half bottle of red wine a day is good for the bladder as i can testify.

Going for a daily walk as part of your routine helps as well, especially if you have somewhere nice to walk.á

In other words if you are a lazy fat lump of lard you will likely die early !

Sitting around is also bad for the prostate.

A bit of the 'other' is very good for the prostate.

THERE HAS BEEN ANOTHER PIECE OF RESEARCH WHICH HAS SAID THAT WATCHING TOO MUCH TV CAN LEAD TO BLOOD CLOTS AND DEATH AS A RESULT.

What the bloody hell can we do...don't sit down, don't drink, don't eat, don't smoke, don't go out after dark yet a few months ago, a young man dropped dead due to running 5 miles!!!


Perhaps we should just stay in bed with the curtains closed and wait for Armageddon ...we can lie down I presume?
