During a recent study, scientists revealed that exercising for a certain period of time is very important to remove the harmful effects of a day of sitting.

According to research, if you have spent 10 hours of the day sitting, it is very important to perform 40 minutes of exercise or physical activity every day, including moderate or intense exercise, to avoid its harmful effects on health, and according to experts, it is the right time.

The study is based on a meta-analysis published in 2020 that analyzed nine previous studies.

Research has shown that some minor physical activities such as cycling, brisk walking and gardening can also help you reduce your risk of premature death.

The World Health Organization recommended 150 to 300 minutes of moderate or 75 to 150 minutes of vigorous physical activity or exercise per week to make up for excessive sitting.

Experts say that walking on stairs instead of elevators, playing with children and pets, participating in yoga or dancing, doing household chores, walking and cycling are all physical activities that people can do more active by doing daily tasks.
