Science has proven that sitting too much is bad for your health, but what can you do about it if you're stuck at your desk all day? "Designed to Move" gives deskbound professionals a practical, easy-to-follow movement plan to fight the debilitating and life-shortening effects of sitting disease. Dr. Joan Vernikos, former director of NASA's Life Sciences Division, draws on decades of scientific research on astronauts to show readers how to use gravity-based movement to counteract the effects of prolonged sitting and maintain lifelong good health.Written for everyone who spends most of their lives sitting in chairs, "Designed to Move" provides readers with a science-backed health program that helps people stay healthy while at work. Expanding upon her groundbreaking previous book, "Sitting Kills, Moving Heals," Dr. Vernikos shows how developing simple new lifestyle habits at the office can reverse the symptoms of sitting disease and even aging itself, and lead to a life of bountiful health.
