Many researchers are saying that physical inactivity is actually becoming a global pandemic.
Lack of exercise causes as many as 1 in 10 premature deaths around the world each year.
That's about the same numbers as smoking.
That's kinda scary.
57 million deaths worldwide are attributed to heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, breast cancer and colon cancer.
Many of these things can have their risk lowered or be prevented through moderate daily exercise.
Literally 30 minutes of physical activity a day can save your life.
All you have to do is be inactive for only 23.5 hours a day.
Just get moving.
Seriously. Right now.
Get up and just walk to the bathroom and wash your hands or go get some water from the break room or walk up or down the stairs in your home and back to your chair.
We'll be here when you get back. Promise.
