The Hidden Dangers Of Sitting For Too Long

On average, how long do you spend sat at your office chair? Think carefully, because it’s probably far more than you think. The average adult in the Singapore sits down for more than 7 hours every day, whether that’s at work or in general. As we get older, that is thought to increase to around 10 hours.

Whilst that might not sound like a lot, considering there are 24 hours in a day, sitting for 7 hours is actually considered to be a sedentary lifestyle. The problem is compounded by the fact that most of us don’t get enough exercise either, so we’re sitting for longer and we’re not doing much to counteract the possible effects.It all adds up to a rather unhealthy picture, whether you’re sat at your office desk or not.Office workers are at an increased risk of health issues related to sitting for too long. This basically comes down to the fact that the very crux of office work includes sitting down at a desk, either on ergonomic chairs or otherwise, and doing work at a computer. Whilst it’s possible to get up and walk around occasionally, the bulk of the day is spent sat down. More and more employers are becoming aware of these risks and encouraging their staff to be more active in the workplace. This includes height adjustable desks for sitting and standard patterns, active seating methods, and encouraging staff to simply move more, e.g. being active on breaks, as well as taking regular breaks also.And make sure you use the Office Chair Singapore of Ardent Office Furniture (AOF) Singapore.
