  12. 12. Exercise is medicine and physicians need to prescribe it! • There is clear evidence proving the benefits of regular physical activity in prevention of chronic disease & lowering of mortality rates • Little is being done by organised medicine to try & increase physical activity amongst patients • There should be merging of fitness industry with healthcare industry

  14. 14. Day • Too much sitting • Poor posture: slouching • Neck Pain • Back Pain • Shoulder Pain • RSI
  15. 15. Night • Sleep 6-8 hrs • Poor posture • Bad pillow / mattress • Sleep is to recover & rejuvenate for next day • How many of you feel tired when you get up? • Improper resting is not the solution
  16. 16. • We are built to move • We spend • 8 hrs sitting in front of the computer • 3 hrs in front of the idiot box • 2 hrs at dining table • We are doing nothing for 14 hrs • >50% working population has back pain
