Obesity and a lack of exercise is a major problem for millions of people around the world and unfortunately things are not improving in most areas. The good news is that this week a medical study released shows that just a few simple steps can actually make a huge difference in terms of life expectancy for even the most overweight people. The study was focused on people that exercise just over 10 minutes per day and it showed that there can be a significant life expectancy increase.
Just 10 minutes of exercise per day was linked to a life expectancy increase of nearly 2 years, which is a very noticeable change. Of course the study also showed that 20 minutes, 30 minutes, or an hour each added progressively more time onto a person’s life which once again shows the importance of exercise. The good news is that no matter how bad of shape a person is in, a simple and short workout really can make a difference.
As always doctors are recommending exercise and healthy eating to everyone and this just goes to show that even the slightest change can make a big difference. A quick 10 minute workout per day might not be enough according to most doctors, but it will at least get you started in the right direction.
