Does standing help to improve your health over sitting? I am an eighth-grader at CMS. For an assignment, I designed and conducted a STREAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) project to investigate the answer to this question. My results told me that standing is way more effective than sitting. Even though it is more effective than sitting, you still have to eat right and workout a lot for it to show the most change. In conclusion, standing is a good way to help get in shape as long as it is not the only thing you're doing. My results should be of interest to you, because this simple exercise could help many people live a healthy life.
