The worldwide lockdown due to the ongoing Corona epidemic for the last two years forced people to stay in homes for a long time. As a precaution, the work of colleges and offices started from home. While this culture of work from home has played a role in keeping people safe from the corona epidemic, it has led to increased risk of physical inactivity, unhealthy diet, metabolic disorders and obesity. Health experts consider the changes in lifestyle during work from home to be very serious for health.
A recent study related to this suggests that increased physical inactivity among people due to lockdown can lead to death. According to health experts, due to physical inactivity, the supply of blood and oxygen to the brain gets disrupted, which can lead to stroke. This condition can be fatal for people.
What did the study find?
A study published in the journal Stroke suggests that habits such as sitting in one place for more than eight hours a day can cause serious health damage. Physical inactivity increases the risk of stroke by up to seven times. According to experts, the lifestyle of most people doing work from home has become such that physical inactivity has increased significantly.
Heart attack and stroke risk
According to the researchers, physical inactivity or sedentary lifestyle can increase the risk of inflammation, affecting blood flow, lipid metabolism and glucose levels in the body. Over time, such conditions can have a negative effect on blood vessels, increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke. Both of these conditions are generally considered fatal.
How to reduce this risk?
According to the study, people working from home for a long time need to be very careful about their health. For such people, doing regular yoga and exercise can be the best option. It can help reduce its negative effects through exercise. According to the American Heart Association, adults should get at least 150 minutes of moderate-level exercise each week. The risk of heart attack and stroke can be reduced by exercising.
