Sedentary Behavior Research Network: Terminology Consensus Project

The Sedentary Behavior Research Network (SBRN) undertook a Terminology Consensus Project to address the need for clear, common and accepted terminology and definitions. The results of this project provide consensus definitions for the terms physical inactivity, stationary behavior, sedentary behavior, standing, screen time, non-screen-based sedentary time, sitting, reclining, lying, sedentary behavior pattern, as well as how the terms bouts, breaks, and interruptions should be used in this context. A link is provided to download the peer-reviewed paper.
