    A sedentary lifestyle, compounded by the pandemic's quarantine, increases the likelihood of premature death. However, this harm to health can be compensated for by increased physical activity, experts from the World Health Organization write.

    The advice to lead a more active lifestyle and spend more time on exercise to maintain health is hardly a medical breakthrough, but this is the first time such advice is being made at the level of the World Health Organization.

    They reflect a growing body of research showing the relationship between a sedentary lifestyle with serious health risks and an increased risk of early death.

    The existence of the "previous" universe received mathematical confirmation

    A study of over 44,000 people from four countries equipped with fitness trackers found that if a person spends 10 or more hours in essence in a sedentary state, they are significantly more at risk of premature death than others. Especially if they do not play sports the rest of the time.

    However, new data show that adults who spend several hours a day sitting can compensate for the harm caused by a sedentary lifestyle if they increase their physical activity.


    At least 30-40 minutes of moderate or vigorous exercise is enough to significantly reduce the risk, according to the WHO recommendations.


    The data collected was not sufficient to indicate the maximum time that can be spent sitting. But everyone, regardless of age or skill, should try to shorten the hours of inactivity and replace them with physical activities of any degree of effectiveness.

    This can be anything from climbing stairs or doing chores to jogging, cycling, or playing sports.

    The main thing is that there should be 150 to 300 minutes of moderate activity per week or at least 75 to 100 minutes of high-intensity classes. Any amount of load is better than none, the report says.

    An active lifestyle is beneficial not only for health, but also for the benefit of the economy, reducing the number of days off for health reasons, and increasing employee productivity.

    A minimum of 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise will increase global GDP by 0.15% to 0.24% per year by 2050. This is equivalent to GDP growth of $ 314 - $ 446 billion per year.

    Seniors over the age of 65 are encouraged to focus more on developing balance and strength at least three times a week to improve performance and prevent falls.
