Too Much Sitting

Ron wakes up. He sits down to eat breakfast. He sits on the bus to work. He sits at his work desk for eight hours each day. He sits during his breaks and at lunch. He sits on the bus ride home.

At home, Ron sits on the sofa and watches TV. He sits in his chair to read a book. Ron sits almost 14 hours each day!

Ron’s back aches. He talks with a friend about the back pain. His friend says, “You sit all day. You need to stand more. You need to walk or move. That will help your back.”

Ron will try to move more. He hopes his back will feel better!
