walk-at-work

We all know that we’re supposed to get 30 minutes of exercise every day for optimal health. But breaking that 30 minutes up into short 10-minute sessions may actually be BETTER for us. Researchers at Arizona State University found that doing three 10-minute walks every day was a better strategy for lowering blood pressure than one 30-minute walk per day. That’s because blood pressure is improved right after the walk. So if you’re walking 3 times a day – you’re lowering your blood pressure 3 times a day – and the results last longer. But to get the full benefits, walk quickly, like you’re late for work.
