If you sit around for more than 10-hours a day, get up NOW. No seriously, a study forewarns that women who led a more active lifestyle as they aged were treated much kinder by Father Time. Women who sat for more than 10-hours a day were approximately 8-years older than those who were more active. Sobering details considering most of us who have desk jobs sit for at least 8-hours a day. The best solution to counteract this less-than-perfect science of aging may be to work your butt-off at the gym for 2-hours a day or walk home. Just kidding (sort of). A study published recently advised that people who were sedentary during their week can ‘make it up’ by being weekend warriors and getting their hearts pumping over the weekend. The total amount of blood pumping activity should top-out at 150-minutes. Those are your variables now put them into play.
