Let’s Talk: Sedentary Lifestyle
Pressure doesn’t always convert into motivation for everyone. For some people the coping mechanism is inactivity, distress and sometimes becoming sedentary. There are people who give in to binge-watching entire seasons of shows or taking several naps during the day not as a way to relax, but as a way to procrastinate and avoid self-regulation.
