Sitting is the new smoking

One of the most menacing things that you can do to yourself while working is just sitting for hours. Not only it takes away the energy, but it also leaves your spine sore, frigid, and in pain.

Slouching is one of the assorted reasons for spinal problems in our lifetime. Don't forget that our spine is a part of the central nervous system along with the brain and leans on the peripheral nervous system.

What we eat can promptly influence your spine. It is very important to make sure you have good posture especially when you have prolonged sitting hours in the office.
