Why 30 minutes?
Research tends to show that about 150 minutes of regular, moderate exercise per week can lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers. Spread that 150 minutes throughout the week, and all you need is 30-a-day. Sounds simple, yeah? No matter how busy your day is, there are plenty of ways to get that all-important activity done.
The point of this graphic is to show how those minutes add up if you just make a few "lifehacks" - easy, fast changes to your normal routine that bring results. We're not talking anything major - just doing things like taking the stairs instead of the elevator, or going for a quick walk on your lunch break can make a difference.
