Recent Study Points Out Risks of Too Much Sitting

These days, living a balanced life is a difficult task. Americans are working longer hours and sometimes more than one job just to keep themselves afloat in this hard economy. There never seems to be enough hours in the day to get everything done and, most often than not, sacrifices end up being made. What is evident is that most people are sacrificing their physical health and our society is starting to take notice and be concerned about how long this can last.

Public Health and Medical experts all over the world are paying attention to the effects of sacrificing our physical health when trying to meet all the demands on our time. Recently, these experts have noted that most people spend quite a lot of time sitting compared to being on their feet. Most jobs, thanks to many great technological advances and trends, require sitting at a desk for the better part of the day. And then what are we doing when we get home? Sitting some more; in front of our computers or our televisions. All this sitting, also known as sedentary lifestyles, seems to be contributing to the staggering numbers of Americans with diabetes, Americans who are obese, and Americans who have been diagnosed with heart disease.

Its obvious our bodies were not made to be sedentary. Health experts can give you the proof that your body was meant to be active, and not just active for a couple hours a day. Even individuals who religiously exercise for an hour or two a day are not exempt from the health problems involved in sitting for the rest of the day. What happens? Well, blood circulation slows down, chances of depression increase, spine health is compromised because the muscles in your hips and hamstrings stiffen – that’s just to name a few.

So what do we do instead? We understand that we can’t all quit our jobs but we can make a couple small changes. Doctors at the Mayo Clinic suggest standing up every 30 minutes. Other ideas are to avoid the elevator and take the stairs, go to the mall and do your shopping instead of ordering online, if you want to watch tv at home then make sure you’re walking on the treadmill at the same time. Simple changes can lead to better health and that is always worth it.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
