Here’s Exactly How Long You Should Spend Sitting, Standing, and Sleeping Each Day

Add it up.  The time you spend at work, on the couch . . . and on the toilet.  How many hours will you spend SITTING today?

A new study looked at the exact amount of time the average person should sit, stand, sleep, and exercise in a typical day.

The good news is you should feel free to spend a significant amount of your life kicking back.  The bad news is most of us are well over the ideal number already.  Here’s the healthiest combo, according to the results . . .

1.  Sleep for 8 hours and 20 minutes.  But as little as 7.5 hours is okay.

2.  Sit for 6 hours.  Even 7 might be fine.  But if you watch a lot of Netflix and have a desk job, you’re probably over that.

3.  Stand for 5 hours and 10 minutes.  That’s just standing and walking around.  It doesn’t include time spent exercising.

4.  4 hours and 20 minutes engaged in some level of physical activity.  Half should be “light” activity, like walking or doing housework.  The other half should be moderate-to-intense activity.  So, 2 hours and 10 minutes of actual exercise.
