GET ACTIVE IN 2022 And, Get Daily Exercise!
Start 2022 with a new stride, quite literally, by getting more exercise. According to the Mayo Clinic, exercise can help improve mood, boost energy, and promote better sleep! Each of these things is directly connected to being your best self and being more productive. Start small and ramp your way up to more exercise when you can find the time—a few minutes of increased exercise per day will get you on the right track.
Wondering how much time is recommended? The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, 2nd edition, published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, suggests the following.
Recommendations for Adults • Get at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity or 75 minutes per week of vigorous aerobic activity, or a combination of both preferably spread throughout the week. • Add moderate- to high-intensity muscle-strengthening activity (such as resistance or weights) on at least 2 days per week. • Spend less time sitting. Even light-intensity activity can offset some of the risks of being sedentary. • Gain even more benefits by being active at least 300 minutes (5 hours) per week. • Increase amount and intensity gradually over time. Challenge: Text a friend who can help remind you to stay active at least once a day!
