The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommends that adults get 150 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic activity every week. That is 2.5 hours every week. Are you getting this aerobic activity in each week? It is actually pretty easy when you consider that brisk walking is a moderate intensity aerobic activity!
Break up the time
The CDC even goes so far as to say that 10 minutes of aerobic activity at a time is enough. So, can you find 15 times to go for a 10 minute walk during your week? You could go for a 10 minute brisk walk 3 times per day for 5 days during the week. A 10 minute walk after each meal during your work week? Not too difficult to fit in, is it?
