Sitting for hours at a computer has proven deadly. Not only is sitting boring, but research is now showing that sitting for long periods of time can take years off your life. The act of sitting almost immediately reduces your metabolic rate by reducing the electrical activity in your muscles; in turn insulin production decreases and the chance of developing diabetes or obesity increases, according to a New York Times article outlining recent research on inactivity.

To give your butt a break, try this quick yoga sequence meant to get you moving and stretch the muscles that naturally tighten when we sit.
