 Desk Jobs More Likely To Turn Employees Into Couch Potatoes
A study has claimed that desk jobs could make people to slump on the sofa at home and do no exercise.

The average office worker spends five hours 41 minutes daily at their desk, which is almost as long as the seven hours they spend sleeping, the Daily Express reported.

According to researchers at Loughborough University, these deskbound workers are more likely to turn into couch potatoes, increasing their risk of obesity.

The trend is partly blamed on technology making it easier for lazy staff to email a colleague rather than walk over to see them.
