Physical Activity Increases Lifespan

Working Out Cuts Your Risk of Early Death By 35% A study published in January by Columbia University that followed 8,000 adults found that swapping a half-hour of sitting around with physical activity of any intensity or duration cut the risk of early death by 35%. It doesn’t take much – sneaking 30 minutes of exercise into the day is something anyone can do. Take the stairs, park farther away than you need to, walk to lunch. Try 10 minutes of core exercise and push ups to start the day or a 15-minute walk over your lunch break. It adds up, and it’s by far the most important step you can take to reduce your risk of death from chronic illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and cancer.
