To maintain health and reduce your risk of health problems, it is recommended that you engage in at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity on most days. Being active in small ways throughout the day can make a big difference. If you’re finding it hard to fit in 30 minutes of continuous activity in your day, try exercising in 10-minute bouts three times a day. This has shown to be as effective as 30 minutes of continuous exercise.
Benefits of physical activity:
- Reduced risk of heart attack
- Manage your weight better
- Improved quality of life
- Improved mood and sleep
- Stronger bones, muscles and joints
- Reduce anxiety and depression
