Floor living is a term used to describe spending less time in chairs and more time on the floor.
Most of our day is spent sitting. We're at the breakfast table, commuting in our cars, working at our desks, or relaxing in front of the TV. Even time at the gym is often spent working out on machines while sitting. This can wreak havoc on our bodies.

Sitting can wreak havoc on your health and not just in the form of minor aches and pains.

It turns out that sitting is as much an occupational risk as is lifting heavy weights on the job. The facts are in: sitting literally shortens your life. Your chair is your enemy and it is murdering your body.
