Experts say just 30 minutes of activity on most days will help you stay healthier.  Adding exercise into your life may be easier than you think.  You can break up the 30 minutes into shorter chunks.  Just make sure you exercise for at least 10 minutes at a time and get your heart rate up.  Work out hard enough that you can sweat and your heart beats faster, but not so hard that you can’t talk while exercising.IMG_4816_2

  1. Exercising does help us mentally and both physically. It always made sense to me that exercising helps us mentally. Being physically active helps me write better and makes me feel better about myself.

  2. exercising is good, makes us confident, better looking and boosts our happiness. also it keeps us busy, instead of being home bored, because it is scientifically proves that boredom leads to depression/ anxiety. therefore just go out, not even for a run you can walk for miles and enjoy nature, life!
