    Lounging around on your duff all day everyday has been scientifically proven to be pretty much the worst thing you can do to your health. It is worse than smoking!

    It’s why I use a fitness tracker to make sure I am moving enough

    I'm sure doing nothing is not good for us, but two months someone will come up with a study that shows something else is the most horrible thing we can do.

    I've always liked the quote by GM Trevelyan: "I have two doctors, my left leg and my right."
