November is American Diabetes Month
November is American Diabetes Month!  Don’t Just Sit There, Jump Up And Celebrate!

Why should you jump up and celebrate that November is American Diabetes Month?  Because a recent study involving nearly 800,000 participants published in Diabetologia this week concluded that, even for people who exercise, sitting for long periods of time significantly raises the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and premature death.

So if you jump up and celebrate, that limits your “sitting time,” which has been shown to reduce the risks of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and premature death.  The average adult spends a whopping 50 to 70% of their time just sitting.  A sedentary lifestyle is so common in our society today that we really do need to find ways to reduce “sitting time.”  This isn’t as hard as it sounds.  You can accomplish this goal by breaking up long periods of sitting by getting up and placing your laptop on a filing cabinet for a period of time.  Another strategy for breaking up “sitting time” is by taking two-minute breaks of light to moderate activity, like walking.  It’s amazing how much little things can add up to make a big difference in long-term health!  So don’t just sit there!  Jump up, move your body, and change your life!
