Exercise doesn't have to be hard! "Vigorous" exercise, the kind that makes you sweat and gasp for breath, is sometimes a bit more intense than you'd like. Research shows that you can gain similar benefits from a much less intense form of exercise, as long as you use enough energy. For instance, to get the benefit of a 20-minute run, you may need to go for a 40-minute walk.
This week, I will consider a more relaxed form of exercise. I will enjoy the benefits of exercise without pushing myself too hard.
