On top of that, after work people are spending on average 30 minutes to two hours commuting and another 2-3 hours sitting once they get home.

That’s around 9 hours a day that we spend sitting, on average!

But luckily there are a few things we can do to limit these problems, simple things like making a point of getting up and about every half hour or so from your desk – whether to make a cup of coffee or just to stretch your legs – should help to you to feel more energised and keep you healthier and more mobile.
