  1. The increase with age makes sense – as people get older they often become more sedentary. I wonder how they acquired the stats. I’ve heard older people will leave their tv on for company/noise to help alleviate loneliness etc. I use to, trying not to these days, just leave ours on as background when I’m crafting or whatever.
