Stationary lifestyles and the physical inactivity that comes with them can lead to serious health issues.
However, there’s no excuse that justifies the inability to carve out just 15 minutes per day for exercise.
You’ll be amazed at what just 15 minutes of this simple form of walking does for your body and overall health!
Researchers at the University Hospital of Saint-Etienne, the University Hospital of Dijon, the University of Lyon, the Regional Center for Cancer Prevention and Jean Monnet University in France, all confirmed the effectiveness of this exercise.
One such study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine tasked participants over the age of 60 with exercising 15 minutes per day. They found that this lowered their risk of death by 22%, in comparison to participants who did not exercise at all.
The findings were picked up by media worldwide, leading doctors to suggest all people need at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity a week.
Benefits of walking as a low-impact exercise are numerous, including:
- It prevents diabetes
- Weight loss
- Increases the levels of vitamin D
- It relieves pain
- Helps the prevention of colon cancer, breast cancer, and lung cancer
- It supports heart health
- It enhances mood
Give it a try! Just 15 minutes a day could result in you living a healthier, happier, and longer life!
