March Madness is back, and that means college basketball fans are going to be spending a lot of time watching TV. However, it’s important not to sit for too long.

A family medicine physician says you could watch the games while exercising, whether that’s at the gym or at home while on the treadmill or stationary bike.

However, if you are planning to sit for the entire game, make sure to take breaks during commercials and walk around and stretch out.

Finally, don’t forget to drink water. It can be easy to get dehydrated, especially when you’re consuming alcohol.
