What Happens To Your Body While You're Sitting

Huffington Post—September 1, 2016

Huffington Post features a video with Alice Chen, MD, physiatrist at HSS, that explains what happens in different parts of our body while we sit: lungs, heart, gut, legs and spine.

"We're spending 55 percent of our day sitting," said Dr. Chen. "At thirty minutes, all you need to do is move for 1 minute 45 seconds and you can offset that sedentary behavior."
