What health problems does having a sedentary lifestyle put men at risks for?

Having a sedentary lifestyle means that you spend your life doing mostly activities that involve sitting down, such as watching TV or using the computer or other electronics, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Having a sedentary lifestyle can put men at risk of developing a variety of health problems. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), some of those problems include:

Heart disease
Diabetes
High blood pressure
Colon cancer
Depression
Anxiety
Weight gain and obesity
Adding even a minimal amount of physical activity – such as taking a walk for at least 30 minutes on most days of the week – can help greatly reduce the risk for developing these health problems, according to the CDC.
