1. What is it?
According to various health researchers an adult needs at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity or 75 minutes of vigorous activity each week along with a minimum of twice-weekly strength-training sessions.
2. The power/benefits of this daily habit?
Regular exercise and physical activity helps you:
- control your weight
- reduce your risk of heart diseases
- your body to manage blood sugar and insulin levels
- easier to quit bad habits
- improve your mental health and overall mood
- keep your brain (thinking, learning and judgment) skills sharp as you age
3. Why is it important for your balance?
Regular physical activity improves your muscle strength and boosts your endurance. Exercise delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and helps your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. Your heart and lung health improves, which means you have more energy to tackle daily chores.
4. How can I integrate it into my daily life?
While this may seem like a large time commitment for some of us, workouts can be broken up into shorter sessions, even as little as 10 - 15 minutes – without losing their effectiveness. For a person wanting a daily exercise plan, spacing weekly cardio and strength-training activities into smaller sessions each day can help you meet the minimum requirements to reach your own fitness goals.
