When you think about “dangerous” activities, sitting down probably wouldn’t be the first thing to come to mind! But, surprisingly, the health risks of prolonged sitting are actually pretty big. So much so that it’s now a recognized health condition – sitting disease!

The “sitting disease,” or having a “sedentary lifestyle,” are terms used to describe individuals who engage in prolonged periods of sitting or overall inactivity.
