    Most working professionals these days suffer from what the scientific community calls the sitting disease. And if you don’t believe it’s a real problem, just check out health forums like WebMD and Mayo Clinic.
    According to research by the American Cancer Society, the more you sit, the shorter your average life span will be.

    Suddenly, I'm beginning to hate what I'm doing. :( Gotta be taking breaks.

    I wonder if gymming for 1 hour in the morning or evening; and then continuing with the regular work schedule is enough. Or should I be taking 5 minute breaks every 20 minutes? Will that be better?
