Physically Active Women Sitting Too Much

Posted: Updated:

In tonight's HealthierMe, new research finds that even women who are physically active spend too much time sitting. Past studies have shown that people who sit for extended periods of time are at a greater risk of developing chronic diseases, and while many of the women in the study met or exceeded exercise recommendations, they still spent an average of nine hours a day sitting.

Researchers recommend replacing sitting with some light activity, like walking down the hall instead of sending an email.
