Experts say aim for at least 30 minutes of exercise a day, or 10,000.00 steps a day.  If you’re new to exercise, start slow, try breaking into 2-15 minute sessions then work up to 1-30 minute session.  Walking is a great exercise if you don’t belong to a gym, and you can walk practically anywhere.  Strength training is also great.  It helps build muscle, which helps build your metabolism.    Try walking for 15 minutes and strength train the remaining 15 minutes.

Any type of movement is beneficial.  Park farther away from where you run errands.  Take the stairs.  Get up from your desk and walk for 5 minutes.

The more you move, the more, in time, you will want to move!!
