Exercise

Exercise is not just about aerobic capacity and muscle size. Sure, exercise improves your health and your physique, but it has even greater benefits for your energy, mood, and brainpower. A study in the ACSM Journal of Health & Fitness asked long-term exercisers (those who had been regularly exercising for an average of 13 years) what motivated them to continue exercising. Rather than being motivated by building muscle or flattening their stomachs, for example, most exercisers cited the feelings of well-being they derived from exercise, along with increased pep and energy, and how exercise helped them sleep better and made them more relaxed. RECOMMENDATIONS
When choosing how much exercise to perform at both of the set apart times, it’s important to keep in mind the healthy exercise recommendations from organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American College of Sports Medicine. Both organizations suggest that all adults get at least 150 minutes of exercise each week, which can be increased to 300 minutes per week for even greater results. This comes out to two 15-minute sessions, five days a week, or two 30-minute sessions five days a week depending on your exercise goals. These goals can be adjusted to fit your specific health needs and schedule. Before starting any new exercise routine, talk to your doctor to ensure you are healthy enough for the physical activities you have planned.
