Don’t SIT Yourselves

Can you imagine being paid for every hours that you are sitting in the years of your university life? You would become a millionaire (or even a billionaire) in no time.  Sitting down for prolonged amount of time is a usual habit for most university students, but this habit can be extremely dangerous for your health and well-being. Numerous research have found that prolonged sitting is highly correlated with worse mental health, higher risk of death from heart disease and other illnesses, and a higher risk of being disabled. You can combat these problems associated with sitting by having ample amount of exercise, but sometimes exercise is not enough. Another way to fight against the grim future of ‘over-sitting’ is to have intermittent 5-minute walks every hour that you spend sitting. With simple walks and consistent work-outs, you can lead a healthier and a better life.

站起來,更健康!

想像一下,如果按你在大學時代坐在座位上的小時數來付給你薪水,那麼你很快就會變成一個百萬富翁,甚至是億萬富翁。花大把時間坐著是大學生的通病。這個壞習慣對你的健康和幸福來說很危險。數不清的研究都發現,久坐和心理疾病,心臟病等疾病的高致死率,以及殘疾都有密切連繫。想拜託這些疾病困擾,首先你要保持充足的運動量,但有些時候僅僅運動是不夠的。另一個方法是每坐一個小時就站起來走五分鐘。有了這簡單的走動和堅持運動的好習慣,你可以輕鬆享受更健康更美好的生活。
