What is the Minimum Time to Exercise Daily to Keep Healthy?
We are all busy and the minimum time to exercise daily will help us be healthy and spend as little time on it as possibel? Get 20 minutes of exercise every day. This can be just walking at a fast pace. Running for 20 minutes can be hard for beginners. Walk 10-12 minutes and go as far as you can then head back. Run or jog some of the distance. The important part is how long you keep going, not how far you go.
20 minutes is the minimum daily exercise but I would suggest 30-40 minutes. However don’t over do it. Fast walking, easy jog, no panting, walk if you need rest.
If you haven’t moved a muscle in 10 years start with 10 minute walks. Add just one minute every day and you will get to 40 minute walks by the end of the month. Make it your 30-day challenge.
