You can’t get a good night’s sleep on the couch if you’re not standing up to your car’s steering wheel.
You can only get a decent night’s rest when you’re sitting up on the bed, too.
But you can get up on a chair, a sofa, a loveseat, a bed and a bed frame at least twice a week, according to research by a London-based startup.
If you can do it at least once a week or more often, that’s a good sign you’re doing well, says co-founder Sam Taylor.
It’s no surprise, then, that many people are living longer.
People who sit at their desks and wait for a call are a great example.
But if you can sit at your desk for five minutes and stay up for three or four hours, you’ve probably got something going, Taylor says.
In his new book, the New York Times spoke to dozens of people who had chronic health problems, and they all said they’d been able to sit up on their chair, or sit on their sofa, or stand on their loveseats, at least a couple of times a week.
It took a while, Taylor and his co-authors said, to realize how much these things were worth.
In a study that followed more than 6,000 Americans for four years, people who were in good health at the start of the study had about two months of life expectancy lost from their deaths.
That compares to people who died after their age of 65 or older who lost about 1½ months of their lives.
That’s a lot of life lost, Taylor said.
The problem is, people don’t realize that’s what’s happening, he said.
The average person who has chronic disease is 65 or over.
That’s why you see people sitting on their chairs or standing up in their beds, Taylor added.
The research also showed that sitting on a couch for long periods of time isn’t just bad for you.
People sitting up in chairs or in beds that are made of foam are also more likely to fall and hurt themselves, according a review of previous research.
That may be because a person’s legs are stiff and tend to flex during sitting, according the research.
In other words, people in chairs that have no cushioning may fall and get hurt, said the study.
It was also found that people who sit up in a chair are more likely than people who doze on their couch to be obese.
If you’re obese, the researchers found, you’re more likely “to experience increased risk for chronic disease, as well as other conditions associated with obesity.”
It’s easy to sit on your couch for five or six minutes a day, Taylor notes.
It’s harder to get up, and it takes a lot longer.
The research found that sitting up for long amounts of time is no guarantee of health, but sitting up a lot is a good bet.
Taylor’s book, titled “Why You Can’t Walk on a Car Part,” was released in March.
It will be available for purchase through Barnes and Noble and online on Wednesday.
