According to the findings, people who worked out moderately for an hour or more a day were least likely to die during the time of their observation, even they were sitting at the desk for the whole working day. Scientists claim that even lighter exercise while being sedentary weakened mortality risk compared to people who stayed inactive.

Researchers closely studied the available research on the connections between daily physical activity, sedentary behaviour, and premature death. Having analyzed 16 long-term studies including more than 1 million volunteers, they divided the participant into one of four groups, depending on how much exercise and sedentary behaviour they took every day.
