So, if we've not yet motivated you to get off that sofa and have a more active Christmas this year, perhaps this post may help? The average human being sits for 13 hours a day! And research has shown that sitting for too long is just as toxic for our health as smoking! Apart from when we are sleeping, we are designed to move! If we don't move often enough we can increase our risk of developing lower back pain, compromised breathing pattern, tight hips, weight gain, heart disease, carpal tunnel syndrome, type 2 diabetes and the list goes on! So, why not get out and about over the festive period and you too can enjoy feeling better this Christmas and start the New Year feeling more energised! From dog walks, to dancing round the house to Christmas tunes, to ice skating, to having a dance off on the X-Box! There's loads you can do at Christmas time without even setting foot in a gym and the kids will enjoy it too!
