Can you get sick from sitting on the ground?

As a matter of fact you can.

Our bodies were made to move around (not only by exercising) but generally moving around involves muscle and joint movements and promotes better blood circulation through the process.

Example, sitting in an aeroplane gives you deep bone thrombosis even pins and needles is a sign that we must get up from our cushy behinds and move that body. It will not only keep you fit but the increased pressure causes your heart to beat faster during movements, around the house and using the stairs all add up to the process and generally, if you are an active person, you don't really need to go to the gym to keep fit, just half hour a day is sufficient to an healthy lifestyle and to add to that, just eat in moderation and try to eat healthy, which is not possible in most cases but try and drinking plenty of water, about 1 - 1.5 litres per day would be sufficient and will also help you being lethargic as well.
