In recent studies, it has been found that there is a direct connection between working long hours and fear of many serious diseases. Some people claim that they work for a long time after working and then compensate for the loss, but according to the American Journal of Nursing, the loss from sitting for long hours on work cannot be reduce from any exercise.

Due to continuous sitting, most of the deaths occurred in European countries, Middle Eastern countries, America and South Asian countries. The highest percentage of this was 11.6 percent in Lebanon, 7.6 percent in the Netherlands and 6.9 percent in Denmark. It has also been mentioned in the study that if we reduce our continuous sit-down by 2 hours, it can reduce the risk of death due to up to three times.
