All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking. 
                                                                                                   – Fredrich Nietzsche 

Our generation focuses on getting things done with minimum movement, with the help of technology we have managed to achieve such efficiency. Moving around is not a necessity, remote control, electric appliances, e-commerce, online shopping had made our lives easier. We spend an insane amount of time sitting and that is killing us.

Dr. James Levine, who coined the new term ‘sitting is the new smoking’ believes that  “Sitting is more dangerous than smoking, kills more people than HIV and is more treacherous than parachuting. We are sitting ourselves to death.”
