Don’t Sit Around, Get…
…MOVING! Do you sit too much? Well… you better get off your butt & beat cheeks, before you experience numerous health conditions. While some may be immediate, such as constipation, other’s may be long term, such as increased morbidity (disease). Yup, sitting sedentary not only de-conditions your arms and legs, but also your digestive tract! Let’s just sum it up here, you are at risk of:
- Sluggish bowels
- Peristalsis muscle deconditioning
- Slowing metabolism
- And, increased morbidity rate!
To drive the point home, not only are your bowels going to decondition, you may experience a dramatic internal metabolic chemical reaction that will manifest these physical changes, the more you sit:
- Internal metabolic chemical reactions may decrease
- Glucose regulation (blood sugar) may decrease
- Decrease muscle mass and overall strength
- Potential weight gain
- And, ultimately, overall physical degeneration and potential disease.

Simply, get up and move! Everyday, everywhere. Movement IS exercise. Change your routine with lifelong health in mind. Some ideas are:
- Change your transit route to allow for more walking to and from work.
- Arrange your office in a way that more movement is required to accomplish tasks.
- Sit or bounce on a ball instead of using a chair at your desk
- Utilize a standing workstation.
- Pace the halls.
- Stretch, reach, lean, squat, pull, and push to keep moving all day long – squirm.
- Take a walk.
- Walk up and down the stairs.
- Take advantage of onsite or offsite exercise facilities and classes offered by your company.
- Pack your own lunch so you have time to get some exercise on your lunch break.
- Drink plenty of water throughout the day, making it easy to excuse yourself for refills or bathroom breaks.
- Use the buddy method to motivate more activity in the workplace.
OR, try these:
- Outdoor recreational activities
- Playing with your children or grandchildren
- Yard work
- House work
- Home repairs
- Or, dancing.
Additionally, active exercise, such as aerobics, helps your stool move to the exit more quickly. But, WAIT. Wait only hour post exercise to eat to avoid bloating, gas, and constipation (learn more on page 114 http://amzn.to/2ckb2Mm).
As a bonus, physical activity is healthy not just for the digestive tract, but for your whole body and mind.
So, go ahead… squirm, fidget, and wiggle throughout your day!
