New Year, New YOU

It’s three weeks into the New Year – are you sticking to your New Year’s resolution?

If you’re like most people, you packed on a few pounds over the holiday season, but resolved in the new year to get back to your svelte self by beach season. You’re not alone. Studies suggest that the number one resolution people make each year involves improved physical fitness and health. According to an article on Quirkology.com, studies also suggest that nearly 90% of those who make a fitness and health resolution give up within the first month of the New Year.

Why, you ask? People want a rocking body without putting forth any effort. They want instant gratification, and when they don’t see results after a certain amount of time, they give up and fall back into their couch potato slump. Little do they know, if they lived a less sedentary lifestyle, their resolution would be easier to obtain. Think about it, the average person sits 12 hours a day at work, during their commute, at meals and at home.

Let’s be honest, a cheeseburger certainly tastes better than a salad, and sitting on the couch is far more intriguing that a 5-mile run. However, if you don’t change your eating habits or incorporate more physical activity in your daily routine, then you are doomed to be a part of that 90%.

So, is there a solution to help you stick to your resolution? Of course there is, and the answer is simple: Just Stand! At work, at home – everywhere, stand as much as you can. Just by standing a few more hours per day, studies show you will burn more calories, be more productive and even reduce your risk of serious diseases. And the best thing is, being less sedentary provides instant gratification, meaning you can feel the difference of standing more each day immediately.

Studies show that those who stood six or more hours a day felt more energized, productive and healthier overall than those who sat for six or more hours a day. You can even stand at work by incorporating a sit-stand desk that allows you to go from standing to sitting with ease.

The results speak for themselves. So what’s your excuse for abandoning your fitness resolution? Isn’t it about time that you take a stand for your health?
