Fifteen minutes of physical activity a day can help you live longer. A recent study found that as little as 15 minutes of moderate physical activity per day (i.e. brisk walking) is associated with a reduced risk of dying from any cause by 14%, from dying from cancer by 10%, and from dying from coronary artery disease by 20%. From this physical activity, life expectancy was extended by three years. For every additional 15 minutes of daily physical activity it further reduced the risk of dying by 4%. You can start off with short time increments and work your way just takes 15 minutes a day!
