Sedentary lifestyles and the physical inactivity lead to serious health issues. However, you cannot find an excuse for not having at least 15 minutes every single day for exercising. We recommend a simple form of walking that will provide amazing effects for your health and body. Namely, you need only 15 minutes daily to support your 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 of these studies was published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. It involved participants older than 60.
They had to exercise 15 minutes daily, and this lowered their risk of death by 22%, in comparison to participants who did not exercise at all. The study findings maintained that a 15-minute daily walk ‘will help you live longer’.
Media widely reported the results of these studies. Due to all this, doctors claim that you should do at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity a week.
