Exercise More, Live Longer :)

I keep saying this to friends and clients - life is unpredictable, the unexpected can happen BUT we need to do whatever is in out control to increase our chances of living longer and better.

So when I read this month's issue of ZEST Magazine, I had to share this with you:

"Just 15 minutes of exercise can help you live longer. A Taiwanese study of more than 400,000 people over eight years found that even small amounts reap big rewards.

An average of 92 minutes' a week exercise a week led to:
  • a 14% reduced risk of early death 
  • life expectancy being increased by three years
  • a 10% reduced risk of cancer
And for every 15 minutes extra, an additional:
  • 4% reduced risk of early death
  • 1% reduced risk of death from cancer"

Yes, eating healthy can result in losing weight and keeping in shape BUT exercise is very important and shouldn't be ignored.

So get up and do some exercise NOW :)

Hello Adura,
Doing Zumba 4 times a week is it enough exercise to lose weight?
