It’s never too late to get the health benefits from a more active lifestyle.
So if you have been a couch potato, you still have a chance.
For example, older adults who stay active will reduce their risk of stroke and heart disease to a level of young people.
If you’ve been inactive, you can slowly build up your liveliness to reach suggested levels. And you’ll be improving your health anyway during that slow process.
The most prominent health benefits come to those who start from scratch. The more you move, the more you get.
If you spend all your day just sitting down, there are many opportunities throughout the day to add physical activity and exercise.
Are there benefits of getting just a little more active?
Incredibly, as little as walking 15-30 minutes a day can provide health benefits.
Benefits for all of the major diseases can be affected by being physically active and exercising – like high blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol.
