One relatively new area of research is called “inactivity physiology.” Among the highly compelling findings in this particular field is the suggestion that being inactive for long periods each day is detrimental to health, even in individuals who exercise regularly. Be More Active and Less Inactive: Both Are Important for Health summarizes the research in this area and explains why a new paradigm is needed that states, “be more active and less inactive.”

Among the topics covered:

• Sitting too much can be hazardous to your health
• Sitting too much is not the same as exercising too little
• The signals harming the body during sitting are not the same as the signals boosting health during exercise
• Possible solutions
• Too much sitting-a behavioral perspective
• Strategies for breaking the “sedentary” cycle or routine
• Break-up advice: practical tips and resources
