The human spine consists of the cervical spine, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, sacrum and coccyx five parts. Although humans have evolved to walk upright, they have also left behind an underestimated "aftereffect" of increased stress on the spine. From walking on all fours to walking upright, the human spine was transformed into an S-shape to cushion the impact of upright walking, creating a "fragile" disc.
Sitting for a long time, especially when maintaining poor sitting posture, the waist needs to bear the weight of the upper body for a long time, which greatly increases the burden of the spine, leading to the frequent occurrence of cervical spondylosis and lumbar disease.
Reduce fat accumulation
Sitting in a sitting position for long periods of time can easily lead to poor blood flow, especially in the lower body, so small thick legs and belly are more likely to form. Compared to sitting for long periods of time, fat is mainly deposited in the lower body. Standing utilizes all the muscles in the legs, activates them and burns calories without accumulating too much fat.
