Get out of your chair

YOURS (UK) - - Fashion Advice -

Just get­ting up out of your chair for a cou­ple of min­utes ev­ery hour could help to pro­tect your heart and even re­duce your risk of a heart at­tack. One US study found that pro­longed sit­ting en­cour­ages the re­lease of pro­teins that are as­so­ci­ated with dam­aged heart cells. You can fight back by set­ting an alarm and get­ting ac­tive for two min­utes ev­ery hour. Try walk­ing up and down the stairs, danc­ing to your favourite song or do­ing some stretches while the ket­tle boils.
