3. You’re too sedentary.
Most of us spend the overwhelming majority of our time in sedentary positions – sitting at our desks, in our favorite chairs at home, and lying in our beds at night. The problem is, our bodies weren’t designed for this kind of lifestyle – it causes our metabolism to slow to a crawl. To boost your metabolism and burn calories faster, be sure to get as much active time as you can each day. Just the fact that you’re standing and walking around will make a huge difference.
