Many of us who live active lifestyles still work standard office desk jobs. Unfortunately, this means we will spend prolonged hours in an unhealthy body position: sitting. According to certified doctor Edward R. Laskowski, M.D., long periods of sitting are associated with an increased risk of health problems such as cardiovascular disease, obesity, and cancer. Furthermore, prolonged sitting is associated with circulatory and digestive issues.

The reason for this is twofold. First, sitting is not a physical activity. Sitting is the opposite of going for a walk or playing sports. Since you are not expending energy while sitting, it will not strengthen or train your body to be healthier. Second, sitting exerts pressure on the lower body and digestive system. Resting your body weight on a chair exerts pressure on body parts such as the tailbone, hip, and lower abdomen. Not only can this become painful and uncomfortable, but it also hinders your digestive process and blood flow.

You can take two effective measures to mitigate these unhealthy effects. First, be sure to take regular breaks after you’ve been sitting for a while. Stand up and walk to the water dispenser or walk while talking with your colleagues. Second, you can order a custom cushion for your office chair to decrease the pressure on your lower body. A malleable but supportive chair cushion makes sitting a healthier and more comfortable experience.
