The Art of Active Sitting

The Art of Active Sitting | The Basic Life | Scoop.it
Spending 8-plus hours at your desk doesn't have to ruin your body. Add these 5 daily movements to your routine.

 

You’ve heard the news by now: Sitting is the new smoking. It’s been linked to an increased risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and early death. Not to mention possible potato-like proportions. But with most of us logging hours at desk jobs (and recovering from hard workouts with Netflix binges), can it really be that bad?

 

Yes, indeed, says Vladimir Friedman, DC, CCSP, of Accelicare Sports Chiropractic in Manhattan. “When you’re in an improper slouched or seated posture for extended periods of time, there is physiological change in the body," he says. "In addition to the proven disease risks, things start to lock up. Tissues can weaken and the effects can be degenerative.” (In fact, Friedman often shows clients how to apply kinesio tape in a crisscross pattern at the low back to teach them how to stay in proper alignment when sitting.) 

 

Friedman likens the idea to time spent in a cast: When muscle tissue is continually immobile, it shortens and shrinks over time and weakens. But give your body a load using your own body weight—from standing to squatting to taking a walk—and the measure of stress provided helps strengthen it.

This is not really about 'active sitting,' but a list of good exercises you can do at the office. It's important to get up and move around at least once an hour.

9 Ayurvedic secrets to great digestion

9 Ayurvedic secrets to great digestion | The Basic Life | Scoop.it

"The world's oldest healing science holds the secrets to better digestion. And guess what? Most of us aren't practicing them."

 

Sure, you make good-for-you smoothies in your NutriBullet, frequent Hu Kitchen and The Butcher's Daughter, and generally go for natural desserts over fake ones, but you've stillgot digestive drama.

And that, according to Larissa Hall Carlson, an expert in Ayurveda—the five-thousand-year-old Indian medicinal practice—is because what you put in your body is only half the story.

"In Ayurveda, the mindfulness of eating is more important than what we eat," she says. "Changing the way people approach food really affects gas, bloating, and indigestion."
