I read a statistic in a study last week that astounded me:
People spend about 74 minutes/day browsing the internet and 81 minutes per day using “apps” or smart phone applications.
So how is it that we have time to devote 155 minutes per day or about 2.5 hours for technology but not for our health?
I hear multiple times per day “I know I should exercise but don’t really have the time.”
Studies show just 30 minutes per day can be the difference between a diabetes diagnosis or not, being on medication for high blood pressure and even life or death.
One study showed men who walk 30 minutes 3-4 times per week had 50% less risk of morbidity and mortality.
If you can’t find the motivation or time to exercise consider speaking to a health care professional – your life could depend on it.
Enough said for now – so stop reading this and take time for your health. And you can probably find a find a way to incorporate technology with your exercise at the same time.
