How To Prevent Harmful Effects Of Sitting

It’s been proven that being seated at a desk job can be just as harmful to the body as smoking cigarettes. Studies have shown that people who sit all day have a greater chance of getting diabetes and heart disease, and they’re more prone to obesity and back and joint problems.

For most office workers, there’s no choice in the matter. Their professions require them to use a computer, which means they sit in front of the machines for hours at a time. While there’s no way around that fact, some tips and tricks can be employed to make sure movement is incorporated into the workday.

For those who are fortunate enough to have a treadmill desk, they have the best solution according to Amen Clinics. Since most office workers don’t, it’s recommended that they get up for five minutes every hour. Standing while talking on the phone is another trick that can help. If it’s feasible, walking over to speak with a coworker instead of sending an email can add movement to the day. One of the best ways to counteract the effects of working at a sedentary job is to use the stairs instead of the elevator. Going out for a walk at lunch not only helps the body but the mind as well.

Dark Tower Series Coming To Film

It appears that the famous author Stephen King will be getting another movie deal here soon as his book series “The Dark Tower” is set to be turned into a television series as well as a movie.Folks at the Amen Clinic know King has had many of of his works get put into film and it is not surprising that these would join that list.

According to an article found on reddit and written by Yahoo, the theme of the Dark Tower series involves a magical land that only exists in the books and Sony Pictures has agreed to supported and fund the motion pictures. It will be a huge pull in for all of those Stephen King fans out there, but who really knows what it will bring. They say that sometimes a book should just be left as a book and nothing else, but I think that the majority of people prefer to sit down and watch a film over having to read a story these days. Technology has made us privileged in this way and it will likely be a great production. Especially if you are someone who has always wanted to read the books but didn’t have the time, this could be the perfect solution to your problem. It will be an interesting set, that is for sure.

Khloe Wants Lamar Back For Good

Khloe and Larmar fell in love in an instant and it feels like that fell apart just as fast. After following the first year of their marriage, everyone was in love with Khloe and Lamar’s love but now we are all just wondering if they will ever be together again. For awhile, Khloe seemed to be pretty hung up on French Montana but they have proved that they aren’t ever going to go anywhere unless Khloe finally decides she is over Lamar. As it stands neither Khloe or Lamar have done anything to move their divorce along, and the Judge has told them that unless they do something soon the case will get tossed out.

According to Kevin Seawright, recently Khloe has been talking about Lamar and possibly working things out, and her sisters are not on board. After months of watching Khloe cry over Lamar and continuing to see her being let down, Kim is not happy with the idea of them getting back together.

In a clip for an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Khloe and Kim get into a confrontation after Kim speaks up about not liking the fact that Khloe is on the phone flirting with Lamar when she should be getting a divorce. Khloe of course could care less what Kim thinks about her relationship with Lamar and hopefully that continues because if they do get back together, they are going to have to ignore a lot of negativity.

Liar, liar, pants on fire! Bell Gibson told a one of the biggest lies of the year to build her business, now that lie will haunt her and most likely destroy her business.

Author of The Whole Pantry cookbook and app, claimed she had terminal brain cancer (and other types too) and was healing herself naturally. Belle Gibson also raised money for her various types of cancer and it was because of those bogus charities which fronted the fundraising endeavors that Gibson’s cancer came under question.

Belle Gibson admitted to The Australian Women’s Weekly magazine that she never had any type of cancer, it was all a lie. Chua says that the 23 year old mother also admitted she has had a life-long problem with telling the truth and relates some of the misfortunes she endured while growing up that perhaps led her into a lifetime of lying.

Maybe that’s true, maybe it’s not. The disgraced author lied her way into the hearts of many followers, lying her way out will not be so easy. Her words, whether written or spoken, will not be believed in the future.

The car crash caused damage that put her into a coma, and doctors and her family were afraid that she would never wake up. The crash occurred on December 6, and in January, despite being only 26 weeks, she gave birth to a baby her family calls Baby L. They are waiting for Sharista to name the baby boy. The doctors had her give birth by way of a C-section so as to help preserve the health of the child. They waited until the baby was able to survive on its own before performing the C-section.

Sharista was at a point where doctors said there was nothing more they could do except wait and see. After more than 4 months in a coma, Sharista woke up on Wednesday, April 8. Her family said that she followed the sound of her father’s voice and that they are incredibly grateful, and consider it a miracle that she has woken up. Her family says that she is responsive and that she turns her head to look at things and people.

It is unknown how much of a recovery she will make, or what the full extent of her brain damage from the car accident is, but her family is hopeful. Ricardo Guimarães BMG is hopeful as well. They are also grateful that she is still alive and is with them.
