Being active is easier than you think. This does not mean that you have to run a marathon, but it does mean that exercise should be something that becomes part of your normal routine.
If possible, do some kind of moderate to vigorous exercise at least 2-1⁄2 hours a week or 30 minutes, 5 times a week. Some ways to exercise are brisk walking, jogging, and fitness classes.
Two and a half hours (150 minutes) each week. It sounds like a lot of time, but it’s not. That’s about the same amount of time you might spend watching a movie. The good news is that you can spread your activity out during the week, so you don’t have to do it all at once, even in 10-minute blocks of time.
