Many agree that technology has made our lives much easier but it has also caused us to become more sedentary at home and in the workplace. That’s why more and more workplace research suggests that we may want to walk to a desk a few feet away or down the hall to confer with a colleague instead of sending a text message or an email.
Research is emerging that notes because we sit more, we are more at risk for diabetes, heart disease and other health-related problems. We are simply sitting too much in the workplace and at home, as we watch more television, use our digital devices and exercise less.
