Move for 5 minutes
“When it comes to exercise and health span, moderate may be best,” says Dr. Gottfried. “Sedentary folks and strenuous exercisers fare the worst.” She advises finding ways to add 1 to 5 minutes of new exercise into your day, such as heel lifts, push-ups or fast walking. Doing so releases irisin, a hormone that burns fat and turns on the genes that reduce fat storage.
