Sitting all day is as bad as watching TV all day because again you’re not doing anything.

To combat the effects of sitting all day which is harming your body you just need to do two things.

1. Get up and walk around every hour

2. Exercise for at least half an hour everyday

It can be whatever you want, yoga, walking, lifting weights even swimming. As long as you’re being active.
