A major manufacturer of workstations reports that 86 per cent of work computer users have to sit all day, and when they do rise from sitting, more than half (56 per cent) use food as the excuse to get up and move. In addition to sitting at work, for meals, and commuting to/from work, 36 per cent sit another one to two hours watching TV, 10 per cent sit one to two hours for gaming, 25 per cent sit one to two hours for reading/lounging, and 29 per cent use their home computer for one to two hours.
