A new article has come out from the NHS advising the different levels of activity that adults need to undertake to stay fit and healthy. Many people have presumed that simple, daily activities like housework or non strenuous activity will suffice, when in fact; new guidelines tell us this is not the case. A minimum of 150 minutes a week of intense exercise that leaves you sweating with an increased heart rate is key. In England just 40% of men and 28% of women are meeting the new guidelines.
According to the NHS, the new advice for adults is that “adults aged 19-64 should try to be active daily and should do at least 150 minutes (2 hours and 30 minutes) of moderate intensity aerobic activity every week and muscle-strengthening activities on two or more days a week.” Read more
