There’s no doubt that everyone’s busy, which can make regular, hour-long sessions at the gym a challenge. But when talking about health, there’s no reason you have to hit the cycling studio or boot camp five days a week—what’s really important is finding ways to stay active all day long. Maybe that means taking a 30-minute walk or circuit training class at lunch, but it could also mean combating sedentary behavior with incremental bursts of physical activity throughout the day.
A sedentary lifestyle (sitting or standing without moving for long periods of time) is an independent risk factor for all-cause mortality, so finding ways to incorporate exercise into your day is an excellent way to get your heart pumping and your blood circulating while activating your immune system.
