how to get enough ex­er­cise

Better Nutrition - - TRENDWATCH -

It may be eas­ier than you think to stay fit. The lat­est guide­lines rec­og­nize that any amount of mod­er­ate- to- vig­or­ous phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity dur­ing your day— even a few min­utes here and there— will en­hance your health. Walk­ing to do er­rands, vac­u­um­ing, dust­ing, climb­ing stairs, or clean­ing out a clut­tered closet or garage could be mod­er­ate or even vig­or­ous. This is how much ac­tiv­ity it takes to im­prove health:

ADULTS: 150 min­utes of mod­er­ateto- vig­or­ous aer­o­bic ac­tiv­ity per week ( which av­er­ages out to 21.5 min­utes per day), plus mus­cle- strength­en­ing move­ment twice a week. AGES 6– 17: 60 min­utes of mod­er­ate- tovig­or­ous ac­tiv­ity ev­ery day.
