Sedentary behaviour and screen time

It is possible to be both physically active (meet physical activity recommendations) and sedentary (spending large parts of the day sitting), as well as to be physically inactive (not meet recommendations) and non-sedentary (i.e. job requires standing or moving most of the time).

Spending too much time being sedentary has its own associated health risks regardless of your level of physical activity. As much as possible, limit or break up periods of sedentary time and be aware and in control of screen habits.
