The government recommends 30 minutes of walking each day, and according to 2008 guidelines, that should be in at least 10 minute increments. Good news… better, more thorough research is changing those guidelines to make them even simpler: you can get the health benefits of exercise with just 2 minute intervals 15 times throughout the day.
Why the change to getting exercise any way you want? It turns out 10 minute minimal intervals were based on building resistance and increasing strength, which while good, isn’t the goal. The goal is better health and longevity, and any exercise will give you an improvement, just try and total it up to 30 minutes a day.
That means you can start at whatever level you feel comfortable with, knowing you’re getting the recommended health benefits. As you are able, or as a doctor recommends, you should try and push yourself to bigger health gains, like a stronger heart and body. But even if you don’t or can’t? It’s still worth it to do a small amount.
