Walk Further, Live Longer
Actually, not that much further. This study of over 330,000 people from the University of Cambridge, and published in the American Journal of Clinical Exercise shows that,
“doing exercise equivalent to just a 20 minute brisk walk each day – burning between 90 and 110 kcal (‘calories’) – would take an individual from the inactive to moderately inactive group and reduce their risk of premature death by between 16-30%.”
So what are you doing reading this? Go out for a walk. Invest 20 minutes today and increase your chances of living longer.
