Isn’t technology just wonderful? This website wouldn’t be possible without it. Humans rely on technology – and especially computers – more and more every day, to help them do their jobs, connect with friends around the world, and provide us with endless hours of entertainment. But technology has also been the enemy of modern man, the very thing that has forced us into the unnatural act of sitting in a chair for many hours on end. As much as we may love our computers, our TVs, and even our cars, they are robbing us of the movement our bodies need, and plundering our thermogenesis.
The dictionary defines thermogenesis as “the production of heat, especially in an animal body by physiological processes.” Fancy word, but what it really boils down to is that if you stop moving, your body’s metabolism will slow down. Our levels of thermogenesis have declined significantly from that of our parents and grandparents, as our technology-enabled lives have become more sedentary. The effect of so-called “sitting disease” is just recently becoming well understood. The impact that it has had on the populations’ struggles with obesity and diabetes, back and muscle pains, circulatory issues, and even life span, is finally getting mainstream recognition, and millions of people have been discovering new ways to get their daily thermogenesis levels to rise back up again.
