A physical activity program that builds stamina, strength and flexibility can effectively decrease your age nearly 3 years. That doesn’t mean you have to spend hours in the gym.
Studies show that people who often engage in leisure-time physical activities, such as taking a bike ride or a brisk walk, have a lower risk of heart disease compared with those who spend their free timeless actively.
Two hours per week of easy fitness activities may decrease your heart disease risk by as much as 61%. That’s right: Playing like a kid can help you stay young.
