Our bodies were built to move, not sit.
The good news is a small amount of activity can make a difference in your health.
A recent study at Duke University Medical Center found walking just 30 minutes per day, six days per week, was enough to cut the risk of metabolic syndrome.
“The results of our study underscore what we have known for a long time,” said Duke cardiologist William Kraus. “Some exercise is better than none; more exercise is generally better than less, and no exercise can be disastrous.”
So, how do you fit activity into your daily life?
