Sedentary lifestyle does not kill in a fulminating way, on the other way, it goes, slowly and progressively, forcing our body to a state of conscious lethargy, causing a series of harmful effects to our health.

Sedentary lifestyle is, by definition, any conscious behavior that we do while sitting or reclining and that involves a very low energy expenditure, that is, an energy consumption of less than 1.5 metabolic equivalents (METs), which means that the amount of muscles consuming energy is greatly reduced. The longer we are in this state, the more sedentary we are.

According to a Bwizer article, a sedentary lifestyle promotes muscle weakness, not only of the skeletal muscle, but also of the heart.

In addition to this impact on physical and functional fitness, physical inactivity also promotes mental weakness, loss of appetite and sexual competence and loss of quality of life. As if that were not enough, sedentary lifestyle, deteriorating the normal functioning of various organs and systems, contributes to the increased risk of developing chronic non-communicable diseases, culminating in an increased risk of premature death.

Yes, being sedentary, in addition to taking a lot of life away from us over the years, drastically reducing our quality of life, also takes us out of life, increasing the risk of premature death.
