On the Carpet:

Walking Instead of Sitting Prolongs Life, Even in Small Doses

It might not take as much exercise as you think to make a noticeable impact on your future health:

“Trading 2 minutes/hour of sedentary activity with light-intensity activity was linked to 33% lower mortality in the general population and 41% lower mortality in those with chronic kidney disease (CKD), according to an observational analysis ” – summary of a research study in Medscape Nurses. This site requires you to sign up, but it’s free and I’ve found it useful.

The study was published April 30 in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology. Abstract Here.

About Big Red Carpet Nurse (1750 Articles)
Along with other stuff I enjoy that pays the bills (a plus!), I'm a budding nurse comic. I plan, like fake Opthomologist Rand Paul, to create my own professional organization solely so it will grant me a Doctorate. In my case, the org will be something like the AANC (American Association of Nurse Comics), and it will (trust me on this point) agree to make me the first ever DNC: Doctor of Nurse Comedy. I'll keep you posted!

    • My bad, Ginny. Thanks for telling me! I rewrote the article. I quoted the main point, and provided a link to an abstract of the original paper. Medscape Nurses does require you to sign up, but it’s free. I’ve found lots of good stuff there since I signed up recently. – Greg
