#824: MM – New Year Tip on Improving Your Exercise Routine
This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. This entire week we’re focusing on health tips for the New Year. Today’s tip is all about exercise. You don’t have to join a gym or spend a bunch of money. The key is to just start moving more. Yoga or other low impact exercises can be done at home with a DVD or through videos on your computer or phone. Even just walking around the block every evening will yield great benefits. Even the researchers at University of California – Irvine agree that it doesn’t have to be much. A new study they conducted showed that even 10 minutes of exercise per day can improve your brain function. Look at that – you can improve your physical body as well as your mental capacity through small and easy steps. Really, there’s no excuse. The key to this goal is to be specific. Don’t just say you want to exercise more. Instead, come up with something measureable like walking 10,000 steps per day or doing 30 minutes of yoga three times a week.
