Exercise is essential for maintaining your health, it helps to regulate blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and weight, which not only helps combat diseases but also has lasting effects on the mind. The Department of Health and Human Services recommends that adults should be doing 150 minutes of aerobic exercise per day.
But in a world where busy schedules can get in the way of longer exercises, is there a better way?
Contrary to its name, exercise "snacking" doesn't actually involve eating food. It's a series of mini high-intensity workouts that take less time and have been shown to provide greater health benefits. The recommended method is to do around 12 minute bursts of high-intensity activity preferably before breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Even so, jogging intensely on the spot for one minute can do the job. It's really all about what works for you.
The method has been proven to better control blood pressure and sugar levels, as well as helping to curb food cravings!
