Finally! A New Study Reveals How Much Exercise We Actually Need
In an era of slow fitness, it probably comes as little surprise that we don’t need to exercise nearly as much as previously thought in the name of longevity. In a large new study published on this topic, researchers concluded from studying exercise habits of 130,000 people that just 150 minutes of exercise per week can help you live longer.
Just to break that down for you, that’s 30 minutes of exercise, five days per week. And you don’t have to spend those minutes logging seven-minute miles on the treadmill, either: In this case, exercise includes walking and even cleaning your house.
