It’s raining, again. The kids are getting bored. Screens might be able to help for a while, but eventually, even the iPad can lose its luster. Besides, too much time screen time can leave your kids whiny and irritable. No one wants to be stuck inside with a houseful of grumpy children. Maybe your entire family has decided to binge watch all ten seasons of “Friends” on Netflix, and your butt is literally getting sore from sitting too long. Did you know that too much sitting has a host of negative health effects? According to the Mayo Clinic: “Any extended sitting — such as at a desk, behind a wheel or in front of a screen — can be harmful. An analysis of thirteen studies of sitting time and activity levels found that those who sat for more than eight hours a day with no physical activity had a risk of dying similar to the risks of dying posed by obesity and smoking. However, unlike some other studies, this analysis of data from more than one million people found that sixty to seventy-five minutes of moderately intense physical activity a day countered the effects of too much sitting.”
