Sedentary Lifestyle

Today, technological advances and modern conveniences have led to an increasingly sedentary lifestyle for many Americans. Many people have jobs that require them to sit in front of a computer all day while modern machinery has made physical labor nearly nonexistent in many occupations. Children opt to play video games, foregoing physical activities that were popular a generation age. Cable TV provides hundreds of channels to choose from, and the average American watches several hours  of television daily. People drive their cars even short distances rather than biking; they use drive- thru windows for everything from purchasing food and prescriptions to getting money from the bank. Unfortunately, a sedentary lifestyle has become the norm in America today.
