Going for a 10-minute walk every day or going for an hour-long jog once a week?
The daily exercise is better, even if you don’t break a sweat. That’s according to Dr. Michelle Segar, the director of Sports, Health and Activity Research at the University of Michigan. She says it’s best to choose consistency over quantity. In other words, any exercise you can do daily is beneficial – and, if you keep it short and simple, you’re more likely to keep at it. Plus, studies show that daily workouts – even small ones – increase calorie burn, help build strong bones, muscles and tendons, and improve balance.
