But 30 to 40 daily minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity substantially weakens this risk, bringing it down to levels associated with very low amounts of sedentary time, indicate the findings, which broadly confirm the recommendations set out in the 2020 World Health Organization Global Guidelines on Physical Activity and Sedentary Behaviour.
In an update of its physical activity guidelines, the United Nations health agency stressed that exercise was vital to physical and mental health, while sedentary behaviour can have serious repercussions. Global health leaders agreed on the plan at the 71st World Health Assembly in 2018 with the aim to reduce physical inactivity by 15% by 2030. "These guidelines are very timely, given that we are in the middle of a global pandemic, which has confined people indoors for long periods and encouraged an increase in sedentary behavior", he says.

"Any duration of physical activity is beneficial".
Currently, the scientists admit that there is not sufficient evidence available to set exact daily limits for time spent sedentary, however, the data strongly highlights the benefits of replacing sedentary activity with physical activity of any intensity when possible.
The research based on fitness trackers is broadly in line with the new World Health Organization guidelines, which recommend 150-300 mins of moderate intensity or 75-150 mins of vigorous intensity physical activity every week to counter sedentary behaviour. "And if you must spend a lot of time sitting still, whether at work or school, you should do more physical activity to counter the harmful effects of sedentary behaviour". And the new normal means that certain skills will be highly sought in the post COVID-19 world, given that many of our usual ways of living have changed.
