Stay in Motion

1608Too much sitting is linked to heart disease, diabetes and premature death, which is why it is important to move and walk as much as possible. Daily walking helps us slow the aging process, and recent research suggests that it can add five years to your lifespan. Avoid chronic sitting and get up and walk as much as possible to stretch your muscles and alleviate stiffness and pain.*

People in good health should strive to take at least 10,000 steps a day, which equates to about five miles. Consider a step motoring device that you can wear on your wrist, or search for a pedometer smartphone app to track your progress.
