By Dr. Mercola

Story at-a-glance
• It has been established that excess sitting may lead to physical health problems, but studies show it may harm your mental health as well
• Women who sit more than seven hours per day were found to have a 47 percent higher risk of depression than women who sit four hours or less
• Government workers who spent more than six hours of their workday sitting experienced more psychological distress than those who sat less than three
• Children who habitually spend long hours in front of computer or TV screens experience more mental problems, including poor self-esteem, anxiety, depression, and diminished happiness
• The key to minimizing the effects of sitting is to stand up often, optimally every 15 minutes, and perform a different exercise for 30-60 seconds

Sitting Kills, Moving Heals:
An Interview with Dr. Joan Vernikos
By Dr. Joseph Mercola



JV: And you know, the other thing is that when you say “Stand,” or I say “Stand up,” then you say, “Okay, standing is the opposite of sitting.” No, standing is not the opposite of sitting, because sitting continuously is bad for you, and standing continuously is bad for you. The body is not designed to respond to square waves.

DM: Okay, so, there’s a consequence of that statement, which is another profound statement that either sitting all the time is bad or standing all the time. There’s this trend or movement for many people who believe sitting is dangerous, so they use standup desks. But from your perspective, that’s just as bad. Is that correct?

JV: Well, any retail employee will tell you that they suffer all kinds of consequences of many hours of standing on the job. Even nurses have known this for years: standing on the job is not good for you. The guards at Buckingham Palace pass out regularly if they’re not careful or do something about it, like contract their muscles while they’re standing. It’s a well-known thing, except you’re right. People have said, “Okay, well, I’ll do the opposite of sitting; I’ll stand.” That’s simplistic and is not good either.

The desks have gone to extremes. There are desks... There is one desk actually called the extension that basically slides up and down. You can move with it as you... Now, who wants to do so much movement while they’re working? I don’t know. But obviously some people feel that they don’t want to waste a single minute. But it is the interrupting the sitting. The interrupting the sitting is not necessarily walking; it is the change in posture.
