Are you an active or a passive couch potato? Research shows that most people having white collar jobs spend 95% of their waking hours sitting – while driving, at the desk at work, meetings, having lunch and dinner, playing computer games, watching TV, reading, etc.
However, if you have walked briskly for a sustained period of 30 minutes, you fall in the category of active couch potatoes or labelled as ‘physically active’ by the public health system. Evidence from the ‘inactivity physiology’ laboratory identifies ‘prolonged sitting’ as a potential health hazard. In addition, the diet confusion, environmental stress, genetically modified foods, negative emotions and other complex health issues do not favour the common office goer who has to spend hours at his or her desk striving to achieve targets and meet deadlines. Passive couch potatoes become rich soil for type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancers and other complicated health issues.
