Exercising is essential to living a long, healthy life. It doesn’t matter if your workout only lasts 15 minutes or an hour – every bit of physical activity helps. Research has demonstrated that just a few minutes of vigorous exercise per day can reduce the risk of mortality due to cancer by up to 40%, and cardiovascular mortality by almost 50%. Not only that, but the immediate effects of exercise will improve your mood and stress levels.
The more you make physical activity a habit in your life, the more benefits you’ll see from it over time. So don’t be discouraged if you have limited time to devote to exercise – every bit helps! Just remember: something is always better than nothing. Get out there and get moving!
