The Average Person Spends 40 Hours Per Week Sitting, Study Shows

The number of individuals living sedentary lifestyles continues to increase, with the average person stating that they sit for almost 40 hours per week. According to the survey that evaluated 2000 British adults, around 27% of the people stated that they are not active as they would wish even though they are in a position to do so. 

Most people are living a sedentary lifestyle. 

Also, the poll shows that 83% of adults spend around 12 hours seated daily. The study by OnePoll on behalf of Babybel cheese snacks indicated that two-thirds of adults wish to be physically fit than they are currently, but 35% say it will be hard to be physically active as they age. However, most people (61%) will like to work out if the duration is shorter. Also, participating in a fun activity can motivate people (65%) to be active. 

Close to 70% of the respondents indicated that they were more active when they were young than now, and 42% of adults say their children help them move around.  

The day when most Brits are active is Wednesday. Activities people get involved in include gardening (29%), cleaning the house (32%), and walking down and up the stairs (22%). Most people are active when they are at work. 

Also, 36% of people indicate they desire good health as one of their top inspiring triggers, whereas 25% only want to accomplish a personal objective. However, 37% of people say that they are their own greatest source of motivation for exercising.

Kids can help parents stay active. 

Babybel’s spokesperson said it’s wonderful to learn that having kids helps keep parents busy. However, it is intriguing that most people prefer short, enjoyable bursts of activity over lengthy sessions. Therefore, families should adjust daily outies to get everybody moving during the back-to-school season. 

Individuals can try being active by doing star jumps, practicing squats, cleaning, or taking stairs instead of the lift. Other activities include stretching as you move out of bed, jumping jacks after sitting for a long time, dancing, playing tag, getting offered a stop earlier, and walking the last mile.
