Although we're always on the go, a lot of times we don't go anywhere. Many jobs require sitting at our desks, which causes many of us to be sedentary 55 percent of our day. 
And that's not good.
"Most of our back pain in this country is in our lower back, around lumbar four, lumbar five and S1. And that's where most of the pressure goes when we sit in a chair," said Dr. Anup Kanodia with OSU Wexner Medical Ctr.
Doctors are also finding that standing can decrease your chances of developing some cancers, diabetes, even obesity. 
"When we are standing our muscles are working. When we do that, our insulin works 40 percent better," Kanodia said.
Scientists believe that a lipo-protein that converts bad cholesterol into good diminishes by 95 percent when you sit too long. They say that factor alone can increase the risk of heart disease by 30 percent.
