Description Sitting down for brief periods can help us recover from stress or recuperate from exercise. But nowadays, our lifestyles make us sit much more than we move around. Are our bodies built for such a sedentary existence? In this TED-Ed lesson, which includes a video, quiz, discussion board, and additional resources, Murat Dalkilinç investigates the hidden risks of sitting down.
