Could you manage 13 minutes a day of exercise?

Another study this time of thousands of people from around the world - shows just a quarter of an hour of activity a day could reap rewards. Their life expectancy grew by three years if they exercised for 90 minutes a week over a 12-month period. They could spend as little as 13 minutes each day, the equivalent of a short jog or bike ride, or just pushing a lawn mower around a lawn.

HOW MUCH EXERCISE DO YOU NEED TO DO? 

Per standard health services advice if you want to get in a seriously healthy state you need to do on of the following goals...

Adults 19 - 64 should try to be active daily to stay healthy.

You could also do:

At least 150 minutes (30 minutes 5 days a week) of moderate aerobic activity such as cycling or brisk walking every week and strength exercises on 2 or more days a week that work all the major muscles (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders and arms)

Or:

75 minutes (15 minutes 5 days a week) of vigorous aerobic activity such as running or a game of singles tennis every week and strength exercises on 2 or more days a week that work all the major muscles (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders and arms)

Or:

A mix of the two every week – for example, 2 x 30-minute runs plus 30 minutes of brisk walking equates to 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity and strength exercises on 2 or more days a week that work all the major muscles (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders and arms)

Easy way to adjust your time: 1 minute of vigorous activity provides the same health benefits as 2 minutes of moderate activity.

All adults should also break up long periods of sitting with light activity.

I plan on sharing and pinning this to the top of my Facebook page to be my reminder to exercise!
