How Much Movement Do You Need?

Determining an individual's optimal level of physical activity is a challenging topic due to the wide range of factors at play, such as health and objectives. 

The short version of the answer is that any activity is preferable to none, and that more exercise is typically preferable to even a lot of exercise.

In other words, if you aren't already exercising, even a little amount of activity each day may have positive effects on your health.

 Those health benefits can usually be amplified by exercising more frequently if one is not already doing so.

These recommendations are only for health purposes and not for the purposes of increasing fitness or improving performance in any way. 

Additionally, those who are sedentary and start exercising reap even greater benefits.

When added to a lifestyle that otherwise entails minimal physical activity, even brief periods of basic movement throughout the day may have profound effects.

 An already active person will not profit as much from an increase in activity as would someone who had been inactive.

Exercise has many and far-reaching health advantages, including as lowering the risk of dementia, depression, high blood pressure, and diabetes.

 The chance of dying from cardiovascular disease, cancer, and any other cause is decreased as well.

 People who were at least somewhat active had a 30% lower risk of dying than those who were inactive.
