Sitting Is The New Sugar, 59/180

Contributed by Jessica Chong, High School Physical Education Teacher

Too much of anything is never a good thing. Day in and day out, students are spending most of their school day sitting at a desk. I don’t think people really realize how much sitting is going on throughout any given day. Students are sitting more and more outside of the school setting due to their constant need for staying connected with their friends via social media. Also, especially with the rise in technological advances, adolescents are spending very little time outdoors. See the above video for some food for thought.
