“Sitting is so incredibly prevalent we don’t even question it. It doesn’t even occur to us that it’s not OK.” ~Author Nilofer Merchant
The research keeps coming in and it’s good news: several 10 minute bouts of purposeful movement (exercise) throughout the day can support and improve your health and fitness. According to Dr. Toni Yancey of UCLA, even 10 minutes of dancing, marching in place or other moderate exercise two or three times a day can add up to a big payoff for your heart and mind. Additionally, study leader Kyle Sevits, a researcher at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, conducted a research project which determined that just a few minutes of intense activity interspersed between less intense stretches of exercise actually helped study participants to burn excess calories all day long. So there you have it…no more excuses for time crunched folks…just get out there and DO IT and remember, the harder you work, the more calories you will burn per minute.
