God knows I needed to read this… It is time to make changes….
The average man’s life in modern times is not that different from a wild animal in a zoo.
Sure, comparing modern living to captivity might seem dramatic, but it’s not far-fetched when you consider the average American is sedentary for 21 hours a day. Sitting is the new smoking is in the headlines everywhere these days.
And death by sitting doesn’t seem so incredulous when you hear stories like this:
“I work 11 hours a day, seven days a week selling insurance. I don’t really care about it, I don’t think anyone does, even though some people pretend to. It’s not natural to sit in a cubicle for that long every day. I mean, I’ve had coworkers next to me die because of this work. Their hearts just went out.”
