How Much Exercise?

A minimal amount of activity

(HealthDayNews) -- Ever wondered what the bare minimum is for exercising to stay healthy?

The Danish-language journal Ugeskrift For Laeger includes a report from Kobenhavns Universitet in Denmark, which recommends 30 minutes of moderate exercise each day. The researchers note that the exercise can be in the form of routine activities -- such as walking, cycling and gardening.

Not only that, but you don't have to exert yourself all at once. The 30-minutes a day can be divided into 5- to 10-minute segments, the report says.
