Sitting

Illustration of a woman and man sitting together

Sitting is one of the basic resting positions for humans where the weight of the body is supported by the ground or other horizontal surface such as a chair. When a person sits, the upper torso is upright and the buttocks supports the weight of the body through contact with the sitting surface. Sitting most commonly occurs on the floor or on a raised seat in the form of a chair, stool, bench or similar. Today, prolonged sitting has been identified as a health risk connected to heart disease and diabetes and it is suggested to take measures to reduce the amount of sitting a person does daily.
