Abstract [en]

There is clear evidence for the benefits of regular physical activity for several major health diseases. Meanwhile, sedentary behaviour, resulting in limited everyday life nonexercise activity and muscular inactivity, is increasing in Sweden. Recent observational studies suggest that prolonged bouts of sitting and lack of whole body muscular movement are independently of additional regular physical activity, strongly associated with common public health diseases and total mortality. This indicates that we are dealing with two distinct behaviours and their effects; a) the benefits of regular physical activity and b) the risks of too much sitting and limited nonexercise everyday life activity.The focus in clinical practice and for guidelines should be to promote and prescribe regular physical activity as well as avoidance of sedentary behaviour.

Abstract [sv]

Ny forskning visar att stilla­sittande, definierat som mus­kulär inaktivitet, obero­ende av övrig fysisk aktivitet ökar risken för flertalet av våra stora folksjukdomarna och förtida död. Detta talar för att vi bör upp­märksamma fysisk aktivitet och stillasittande som två skilda beteenden. Hittills har stillasittande använts som en synonym till fysisk inaktivitet (det vill säga otillräckliga nivåer av fysisk aktivitet). I framtida rekommendationer om fysisk aktivitet och hälsa bör även undvikande av stillasittande framhållas. En viktig uppgift för hälso- och sjukvården blir att sprida och implementera den nya kunskapen i klinisk vardag.
