Sitting down for an extended period of time can be harmful to your health. According to The Lyons Share, sitting for long periods makes you more prone to heart damage, weak bones, slower brain function, an overproductive pancreas, back pain and quicker muscle degeneration. Tip: Rather than sitting down on the phone, stand up.
