Description

Public and university-level education systems require their students to live primarily sedentary lifestyles up until the end of their studies and then graduate millions of young adults each year, prone to continuing these habits and thus, living unhealthy lives. I want to give a brief background on how these habits are instilled at young age, talk about the negative effects of prolonged sitting, and provide my audience, (of both professors and students), with tips on how to reverse this “programmed lifestyle”.
