A sedentary lifestyle could lead to hazardous health. Cut down the danger of sitting your way to bad health with these safety tips

As we have evolved over the years, we have designed for ourselves a so-called modern and comfortable lifestyle. But once you realise that spending too much time perched on your posterior could be seriously damaging your health, you might not feel so comfortable any more.
