According to a recent study, 30-40 minutes of physical activity each day is roughly what it takes to balance 10+ hours of sitting still. Physical activity includes not only exercises, but also cycling, walking, gardening, etc. Researchers analysed 9 studies, which involved a total of 44.370 people from 4 different countries.

These results confirm the new WHO global guidelines for physical activity and sedentary lifestyles: 150-300 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity or 75-150 minutes of high-intensity physical activity per week significantly decrease you chances of getting ill or dying.

Remember, any physical activity will be better than no physical activity. And if 30-40 minutes of movement a day seems too difficult, start small: take the stairs instead of the elevator, walk one stop – and gradually increase the duration of the physical activity.
