It’s no secret, the more you move the longer you live. A sedentary lifestyle leads to higher risks of chronic disease, mental deficiencies and loss of vitality which isn't what anybody really wants. Here is a quick lifestyle tip to help keep your life and body healthy.

Exercising is one of the most effective ways to incorporate movement into your lifestyle. The recommended levels of exercise are 2 1/2 hours at moderate intensity or 1 1/4 hours at vigorous intensity per week. When you incorporate these levels on a routine basis you will increase your life expectancy by more than 3 years. Benefits even occur at lower levels of activity. And doing half the recommended amount will still add 1.8 years.

So, to get the most out of life start moving more today. Be sure to check in with your local lifestyle professionals to assist with living your best lifestyle.
