In the early 1960s, about 50% of private industry jobs in the U.S. required moderate physical activity. Today that number has gone below 20%, meaning we’re spending more time sitting and at our desks than ever. Today the average working hours in the US is above 8 hours a day. So you can very well assume that some people even spend more than 10 hours sitting in their chairs.
Research has revealed that excessive sitting can decrease your life expectancy, and by bringing down the time spent sitting to less than 3 hours a day you could add 2 years to your life.
