Sedentary Lifestyle Effects and Causes Relate to Low Body O2
Sedentary lifestyle has gradually become common during the 20th century due to advance of industrial revolution. The main sedentary-lifestyle effects relate to reduced oxygenation of body cells. It is easy to check and prove that a person with sedentary lifestyle has only about 20 seconds for the body-oxygen test or less.
While the environmental or social causes of sedentary lifestyle relate to common lifestyles and industrial revolution, let us consider the reasons why people cannot enjoy physical exercise. What happens with a person with low body oxygenation, when he or she tries to exercise? Unfit people get heavy- and fast-mouth breathing during and after exercise.
This is common since people with a sedentary lifestyle have heavy breathing at rest and low body oxygenation before exercise. If we compare the breathing of an average person with the medical norm (see links to medical studies below), modern people breathe about twice more than the medical standard.
This heavy breathing at rest reduces brain and body oxygenation and leads to chronic fatigue and depressive thoughts about own physical deficiency (a mental self-image based on poor fitness). Chronic fatigue and depressive thoughts about poor fitness eliminate any desire to exercise forming a vicious circle of sedentary lifestyle causes and effects (see the diagram).

How to transform sedentary lifestyle into joy of exercise?
The most natural way to deal with sedentary lifestyle is to boost one's brain and oxygen content by gradually slowing down automatic breathing patterns and increasing results for the body-oxygen test.
One needs to achieve about 30 seconds for the body-oxygen test in order to make physical activities easy and to solve main problems related to chronic fatigue and sedentary lifestyle. Physical exercise, but with nose breathing only, is the key long-term factor to boost body oxygenation (see Fitness Section for more detail), Up to 50-60 seconds for body oxygen are necessary in order to crave physical exercise and even develop aversion in relation to sedentary lifestyle.
