Sedentary lifestyle.: We know that the sedentary lifestyle,Mohicans many people lead for work, is not healthy. It would be wise to get up hourly to pace around a bit and stretch your legs. Even better, do a formal exercise walk in the morning or evening to combat the general ills of the sedentary lifestyle. Some people even put those little bicycle pedals under their desks to pedal while sitting.
