I was wondering if working in an office is dangerous for your health since you sit the whole day?

That is good to hear because people have told me that office jobs have the best paying jobs but I don't find that healthy to sit all day long.

you could ask to get a standing desk if you're particularly worried.

I work part time as a cleaner but I was thinking about my career job and it doesn't seem healthy in the long run but at least I could work around it because all I have to do with walk in my personal time or exercise lol

it's not healthy to sit all day but lots of places are happy for you to use a standing desk, you can also take steps to mitigate the damage

No, just stretch regularly 2x daily and have an exercise routine.

You just need to aware of it.

Might be, like a filing cabinet might fall on you or someone in the office might get one too many snooty emails from the head of department and snap and go on a killing spree.

Working in an office wasn’t too good for Lee Carter on Eastenders a few years ago and that was despite Lee being a tough ex army type like the rest of the Carters.

i would argue that an office job is less dangerous than a brickie type job.

It s dangerous for your knees though if you spend most your time sitting around but depends on the exercise.
If you do exercise after your job then it wouldn't be but if you adpat this sedentary lifestyle, it's gonna hurt you.
PS- Take breaks and avoid continously sitting for more than 2 hours. Just stand up or go to toilet.

It can be if the job is stressful and you are unable to manage your mental health. Not taking regular breaks can have an impact. The most dangerous part will be the road journey should you travel by car to work.
