HeartFlex Shares 10 Easy Tips for Countering a Sedentary Lifestyle

The HeartFlex Workout Machine Provides a Simple Solution to a Widespread Problem


Austin, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/09/2016 -- A sedentary lifestyle has become more and more prevalent with each passing year. Simultaneously, life has become increasingly busy with tasks that take away from finding time to exercise. With this reality comes a dire consequence that needs to be combated with movement. Being inactive has been linked to 5.3 million deaths globally per year – compared to 5.1 million deaths linked to smoking. These catastrophic numbers call for a serious yet practical response. Current NHS and British Heart Foundation guidelines recommend 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week and scientists suggest that an hour's worth of "brisk exercise" each day offsets the risk of early death linked to a desk-bound working life. The HeartFlex Workout Machine is a truly viable solution for adding movement throughout the day, quickly and affordably, with the everyday person in mind.

As a health and exercise based company, HeartFlex offers 10 simple and practical tips for everyone who is looking to counter a sedentary lifestyle.

1) Don't get discouraged - exercise guidelines are hard to meet – and remember that even a small amount of activity can cause major health gains.

2) Set achievable goals starting with small manageable pieces of activity.

3) Reduce your sedentary behavior by sitting less – stand up – and move.

4) Walk more places and sometimes choose to go the long way around.

5) Park further away from your final destination.

6) Take the stairs.

7) Eat lunch away from your desk and take a lunchtime walk.

8) Walk to a colleague's desk in your office or workplace rather than phoning or emailing them.

9) Research has shown that TV watching is more harmful than sitting at work – probably because of the snacks – so limit your TV diet.

10) Get HeartFlex and "fiddle" your way to health and vitality.
