The human body was designed to move, and when its deprived of this movement, the results can manifest as poor physical health, mood disorders, and accelerated aging.
So we’ll feel bad, look bad, and will be grouchy about it.
Your physical and mental health depend so much on exercise that not getting enough is considered one of the 10 major risk factors for death worldwide
The American Heart Association and other health organizations recommend at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise per week. So simple math (and we like simple), 30 minutes per day for five days a week to achieve health benefits.
So the Science is really in the MATH, and a darn good way to live feeling better, looking better and being more pleasant to be around. AND it’s all legal!
The 30-minute recommendation is a practical and achievable goal for so many different fitness goals. It’s also a nice round, even number we can associate with power-walking on a lunch break, biking to a cozy coffee shop, and to be honest, it’s hardly even one Netflix episode.
Caution: More exercise can lead to additional health benefits, and some individuals may become addicted. Bravo.
