Today, Americans spend an average of 13 hours per day sitting. Sitting for as little as two continuous hours increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, cancer, back and neck pain, and other orthopedic problems. This project contains 8 YouTube videos presented in an engaging, educational and detailed manner to show individuals what they can do to combat prolonged sitting. The videos focus on moving the body’s joints through their normal ranges of motion & improving an individual’s NEAT (non exercise activity thermogenesis)
