Today, we’re going to talk about why a sedentary lifestyle is an underrated mortality risk factor.
Sedentary means that a person has a tendency to sit for a long period of time. The problem is that our bodies need a lot of motion.
Inactivity increases the activation of disease-promoting genes and the inhibition of health-promoting genes.
One interesting study actually compared people who get less than two and a half hours of physical activity per week to those who get more than two and a half hours of physical activity per week.
They found that people who get less than two and a half hours of physical activity per week have an increased risk of mortality and serious health issues, including:
• Breast cancer
• Cardiovascular disease
• Insulin resistance
• Colon cancer
• Decreased cognitive function
• Mood problems
• Problems with cholesterol
• Higher activation of the sympathetic nervous system
• Increased inflammation
Regular exercise activates certain genes that increase your health and survival. But it’s important not to overtrain because overtraining can keep your body inflamed.
The best exercise tips:
1. Exercise or do physical work regularly
2. Get plenty of sleep
3. Keep your inflammation low
How to decrease inflammation:
• Don’t overtrain
• Eat foods that are anti-inflammatory
• Consume omega-3 fatty acids
• Get plenty of vitamin D
• Do fasting
