“If people walked continuously for five minutes or longer, meaning in exercise bouts, they lowered their risk of dying young. But they gained the same benefit if they walked sporadically in short but repeated spurts, as long as they moved often.”
This one’s going to kill your “I don’t have time to exercise” excuse.
The New York Times shares research that has found short exercise stints can help you as much as long ones — as long as the total time you spend moving and being active is similar.
So if you can’t set aside specific time for exercise, look for ways to incorporate more movement into your daily routine and you’ll get the same benefits.
