People spend too much time sitting down, whether it’s commuting to work, working at a desk, watching TV or surfing the Internet. Bodies are often seriously underused, with resulting weight gain and heart problems, which are classic symptoms of PCOS.
So try to stand up for a minute at least two or three times an hour. Telephone calls, for example, are good reminders to get up – try standing for the duration of the call. Even better, walk while you talk. If you enjoy reading, get up and walk about for 20 seconds every time you finish a chapter.
Move about if you are waiting for a bus/train/plane. Avoid slumping in a seat while killing time before your transport arrives. Try standing on the train or bus into work in the morning. But remember: it’s OK to sit on the way home if you’re tired!
Standing for an additional hour each day burns an extra 5,000 calories over the course of a year.
