    Most Thais spend 14 hours a day doing fook all physically, study shows

    Most Thais spend 14 hours a day doing nothing physically, study shows



    Despite being awake, they are not physically active. They spend their day sitting inside cars, at their desk or in meeting rooms

    Apart from the time spent sleeping, Thais appear to spend 14 hours of the day being inactive.

    “Despite being awake, they are not physically active. They spend their day sitting inside cars, at their desk or in meeting rooms. They usually lie down while watching TV or checking their smart phones,” Health Department’s director general Dr Wachira Pengjuntr said Tuesday.

    He was citing findings from a survey conducted by the Mahidol University’s Institute for Population and Social Research.

    Wachira pointed out that such long hours of physical inactivity were harmful to health.

    “Foreign research shows being physically inactive hurts the metabolism and control of the blood-sugar level. This means people are at a risk of heart, coronary and brain diseases,” he said.

    He added that people’s chronic health problems would also take a toll on the country’s economy.

    If it is any consolation I read somewhere that the average dog sleeps 14 hours a day.

    I think that's pretty much everyone isn't it.
    Weekend days are obviously different.
    Stupid study really.

    And do nothing in Thailand ,it's too hot and its more laid back and easy going.
