It is common for any worker or employee to do paperwork in the office or at home sitting on a chair the whole day.  For some people, they can perform their work more efficiently while sitting. However, for some others, they prefer to stand in front of the desk and work on things they have to do.  Health issues about sitting for a long time is not new to everybody but some people just don’t care as long as they could deliver the goods. In other words,  they care about finishing the tasks at hand even if it means risking one's health.  Some of the risks that are related to sitting for a long time are obesity, injuries in the back and spine, less developed social skills, and chronic pain.  Aside from these, posture becomes awkward because  there are less movements to correct it.  Depression or loneliness is also possible to happen in this situation. 


According to some scientists,  sitting for a long  time is about 8 to 11 hours on the desk.  In such long hours  the risk is higher  because less energy is utilized and there is no active physical movement.  Loneliness and depression is also possible because there is little or no social communication at all.  Humans need to communicate with humans for well being.  If  communication is absent, we cannot grow socially and mentally.  Sitting on the desk for a long  time possibly may cause loneliness and depression.  If you work inside the house for long hours and you  don’t get enough sunlight, deficiency in Vitamin D may occur  that could lead to a depressive situation (www.businessinsider.com).  It is also found that developing cancer in women is possible with sedentary lifestyle.
