We all love sitting in front of our TV or laptop for hours on end watching Netflix, but apparently, it’s actually killing us.
According to a new study from the American Heart Association, binge-watching TV on the couch is worse for your heart than sitting at your desk at work all day.
The study found that those who spend more than four hours a day watching TV have a 50 per cent higher risk of suffering an early death or developing heart disease, than those who watch less than two hours.
The researchers revealed that opting for healthier snacks and taking breaks from your TV binge to walk around and disrupt the couch-lounging is a must to reduce risk.
So maybe we should hit pause on our TV marathons … the good news is they’ll still be there when we get back from our walk from the couch to the fridge … err … we mean, outside in the fresh air.
