Get to stepping (and sweating)
Here are science-based recommendations to help improve your health:
Sit less throughout the day. Even light-intensity activity can offset some of the health risks of being sedentary.
Get at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic (aka cardio) activity such as jogging, swimming, cycling, hiking, or walking, preferably spread throughout the week.
Add muscle-strengthening activity, such as resistance or weights, at least 2 days per week.
Note: these recommendations are for those 18+. See recommendations for kids here.
