A study, published in a recent issue of the American Journal of Epidemiology, followed 7,320 participants — half of them men and half women — for 12 years, comparing data about their job types and medical histories. The participants' jobs were grouped by category — those that involved primarily sitting; primarily standing; a combination of sitting, standing and walking; or a combination of other body positions such as crouching and bending.
The take away from the study states, it's that staying in any one position — whether that is standing or sitting — is bad for your health. The key is alternating between those positions and incorporating other stress-relieving movement, like walking or stretching as often as possible throughout the day.
