Walking 20 Minutes A Day May Save Your Life

February 17, 2015

According to a recent study from the University of Cambridge, a brisk 20 minute walk each day may be enough to reduce your risk of early death by as much as half. 

Cambridge's study of 344,000 European men and women concluded that there were double as many deaths attributable to lack of physical activity rather than obesity. 

Researchers also found that a small boost in daily activity can make an enormous difference.

Next Avenue's popular blog the Daily Roadmap summarized the study as:

"Small Change = Big Reward"

Lead researcher Ulf Ekelund, of the Medical Research Council Epidemiology Unit at the University of Cambridge, England:

“This is a simple message: just a small amount of physical activity each day could have substantial health benefits for people who are physically inactive"
