Women who are used to a sedentary lifestyle can feel much worse during menopausecompared to those who are more active. Scientists who published the results of the study in the authoritative journal "The north american", emphasize that the well-being of a woman during menopauseinfluenced by several factors in particular insomnia, depressed state, obesity. It is generally accepted that those women who exercise less than 3 times a week lead a sedentary lifestyle. In this case, physical activity should be understood as running, swimming, active walking, which lasts more than 30 minutes. According to doctors, regular physical activity can not only significantly reduce the intensity of unpleasant manifestations of a menstrual pause, but also reduce the likelihood of development colon and breast cancer, as well as dementia, depression, stroke. Sport significantly strengthens the immune system, which also has a positive effect on women's health during menopause.
However, the negative impact of sedentary work and lifestyle in general affects not only women. American scientists once again warn that sedentary work significantly reduces the life expectancy of a person. A special study was conducted in which 123,000 volunteers from the middle age group participated. A certain number of these people had diseases of the heart, blood vessels, as well as cancer. For 13 years, researchers have carefully monitored subjects.
As a result, they made the following conclusions: women who are forced to sit more than 6 hours a day every day are at risk of dying prematurely by 37% compared with those women who sit less than 3 hours a day. In men, a similar indicator is 18%.
Scientists emphasize that prolonged sitting even for one day can cause negative changes in metabolism. Therefore, doctors strongly advise office workers to periodically rise from the table, stretch and at least walk a bit during the lunch break.
It should be taken into account the fact that people whose work is associated with prolonged sitting have a higher risk of education blood clots. That is, regular workouts throughout the day are important in terms of preventing "stagnation" of blood.
