Playing Bingo can involve hours of sitting during long games. Unfortunately, while sitting for long periods of time sounds benign, it can cause many health issues that are otherwise avoidable through movement. It can create health problems because the body is wired for movement. Sitting causes many parts of our bodies to shut down while in rest and can create bad health results. Sitting for more than six hours each day can result in higher blood pressure, higher risk of cancer, weight gain, poor posture resulting in headaches and backaches, and can create an increase in cardiovascular disease. Fortunately, you can reduce the risk of all these and more health issues through a few easy tips.
Don’t be held down to your chair by your Bingo equipment. Get up and move. Find opportunities to take care of yourself and avoid some serious health issues.
