Still can’t decide if you should buy that treadmill? The answer is yes.
We get it. Simply thinking about exercise can be overwhelming. Carving out even 8 minutes a day to walk can help prevent future mobility issues.
Set Reasonable Goals
You know what happens when we set unrealistic goals such as jogging one hour a day? Exactly – it overwhelms us, so the task almost never gets done.
Don’t get us wrong. Jogging an hour a day is a great long term goal. But don’t forget, you have to walk before you can run.
The Feinberg School of Medicine recommends 56 minutes of moderate activity a week.
That number may scare you a bit. But there’s no need to worry. All you need to do is break that number down. Exercising eight minutes a day sounds much easier than 56 minutes a week – don’t you think?
This new lifestyle may take some time to get used to. Trust us when we say it’ll be worth it in the long run. (no pun intended)
