‘Sitting too long reduces your muscular metabolism by 30%.’
‘Emotional stress occurs when all you do is sit.’
‘Take a break at least every 20-30 minutes.’
‘Try this: give yourself a double chin 5-10 times per day to reduce neck pain.’
‘Take a knee throughout the day- this relaxes your psoas muscle which can be shortened by sitting and cause pain.’
