Risks of a Sedentary Life
It is becoming increasingly common for people to spend long periods of time sitting down in our society. This sedentary lifestyle may be attributed to increased screen time, changes in jobs, and what we have access to.
Women with PCOS, in particular, need to be mindful of this lifestyle, as research indicates that becoming less sedentary can positively impact blood sugar and insulin regulation.
As a healthcare provider (ironically a Dietitian focused on PCOS), I found myself spending most of the day sitting down due to the nature of my work, which affected my energy levels, mood, and overall body.
However, I was able to make changes and incorporate more movement into my day, even with a desk job. Through research, personal experience, and hundreds of conversations, I have found that it is not about intense workouts, but rather consistently moving more and sitting less that helps us in the long run.
Join me in this unfiltered conversation as I share my personal and professional approach to tackling the sedentary nature of our culture. You will walk away with realistic goals, tools, and inspiration to make a lasting change in your life and health.
