IHF Sitting Campaign

The Irish Heart Foundation will be launching a campaign in September to focus on the detrimental impact to health caused by prolonged periods of sitting. The September ‘Heart Month’ campaign will focus on heart health and how it is impacted by sitting even for those of us who exercise regularly.

During September the Heart Foundation will look at the damage caused to the heart by sitting and what can be done about it.

Did you know that sitting for bouts of 3 hours or more every day decreases your life expectancy by 2 years?

From the middle of August updates will be posted on email, social media and on the IHF website www.irishheart.ie
