Which of these two habits could shave the most time off your life?
a. Watching TV
Answer: a. According to a surprising new analysis of health records published in October, every hour that an adult over 25 spends sitting and watching television can cut about 22 minutes from his or her life span; smoking a cigarette reduces life span by about 11 minutes. The reason, according to the scientists who conducted the study, is that hours of sitting lead to an increased risk of diabetes and heart disease and so may have an even greater impact on longevity than smoking.
Time to get moving before the Super Bowl starts (and maybe even DURING the game, as long as I am NOT in front of the TV!).
Enjoy your Sunday.........and do whatever you can to ADD minutes to your life.
I am taking my Fur-Buddies for a walk in our woods.
