Your heart isn’t the only organ that can suffer from physical inactivity. Your pancreas also suffers when you are inactive.
Your muscles convert glucose into energy. They do this when stimulated by a hormone produced by the pancreas. That hormone is insulin.
Muscles that have been inactive for a long time become less sensitive to insulin. It takes more insulin than normal to get glucose into cells, which convert it into energy. The pancreas works overtime to produce extra insulin, which can lead to diabetes.
Physical activity reduces the incidence of colorectal cancer. Perhaps more physical activity will help your gut, reduce obesity, and lower insulin levels.These and other factors indicate that prolonged sitting is associated with a higher risk of cancer.
3. Neck and Back Problems
Sitting in a chair in front of the keyboard is not a natural position for the human body. Your body hasn’t had millions of years to develop the skeleton and muscles needed to do this without damage. Even the principles of ergonomic design cannot go so far as to reduce the harmful effects on the neck and back.
Sitting at a desk for a long time can cause neck pain, tension and even severe pain. Back and shoulder pain are the result of repetitive movements such as tapping or not moving. Movement allows blood and nutrients to reach the discs between the vertebrae, so inactivity leads to stiffness and damage.
4. Muscles W
Muscles respond well to activity.Sedentary lifestyle leads to atrophy and softening of the muscles. Then, when you need it for work, you can suffer from tension and tears.
Abdominal muscles are not used when sitting. When you sit, your back stretches. Both of these factors lead to poor posture and core weakness when standing or walking.
Even when sitting, your buttocks don’t get tense. They are essential for a good walk or run. Lack of movement in this area results in low stability and strength, making it difficult to walk or run.
