Sport and physical activity

People here in Germany spend around 6.5 hours per day sitting down, more than one in five even manage nine hours and more.
 To escape this sedentary daily routine, the World Health Organization WHO recommends at least 30 minutes of moderate activity on five days per week or at least 20 minutes of intensive activity on three days per week. This amount of physical activity is easy to manage and doesn’t take up too much time (or decrease productivity).
 Simply allow your limbs the compensation they urgently need for all the long hours of sitting still, your eyes some time away from the computer screen, and your soul some time to relax.
