Low-intensity exercise is good for you.

It ca n lower the risk of heart disease, hypertension, osteoporosis, diabetes, colon cancer and obesity. The benefits of moderate activity were shown in two studies published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Inactive people can become fitter and healthier by starting with such low level activity--and they are more likely to stick to it and then eventually increase the intensity. Some people are mostly sedentary, and for them the greatest help boost comes simply from getting up and becoming active. Just do normal things like walking, and taking the stairs, but just more often, a little longer, and/or a little faster.

Hi thetis! Mylotters like you need some cardio experxise because we are sitting facing PCs in hours hehehe, most probably aerobic exercise everyday! Or if we can't make it everyday, at least 3-4 times a weeks with 45 mins continuous exercise. Our minds needs to oxygenize, meaning, we have to bring some oxygen up to the brain so it will function well. Brisk walking is best exercise.

Brisk walking too is very good. But I guess anything that keeps the whole body moving where we release some is fine.

Yes I think so, but aerobic exercise is better for the heart. its is about the movement when we talk about aerobic, its about the how long our lungs and heart work while we are moving. some call it endurance exercise, its a very good cardio exercise.

That is an excellent presentation. I do excersize every day inthe evening after I get back home from work. I would say low-intensity excersize. I also practise yoga meditation, and I find that very helpful for mental and physical health, helping in getting relieved of the stresses of the day.

It is good to hear that. Yes. Yoga and meditation are just two of the very effective therapies used in coping with stress. I wish I would have the time to one day practice their benefits and learn how these are done.

I think if the person can't spend much time doing exercises, anything is better than nothing, right? I saw somewhere too that doing 15 minutes of exercises 3x times per day is the same than doing 45 minutes, so, there is not more the excuse of lack of time.
