Running Promises Extra Lifespan

 

Jogging prolongs your life.

 

Every hour you spend jogging promises an extra seven hours of life.

If I exaggerate, that’s not my intention at all.

This statement is taken from an American study that was conducted on 55,000 people.

However, it can be considered as a fact that people who do sports have fewer health problems and a longer life span.

 

Movement is good for your body.

It improves performance and keeps your blood circulation healthy, stimulates metabolism, and keeps your mind fresh.

If you are jogging or doing other sports, you should do so for at least 30 minutes.

After 20 minutes our body releases endorphins known as “happy hormones,” and burns fat more quickly.

 

Run at your own pace.

Until you determine what that is, it is better to run a little slower than too fast.

Physical activity two or three times a week is ideal.

If this seems like a lot to you, consider it an investment that will pay off several times over.

 

Make an agreement with yourself.

Plan two to three fixed dates per week on your calendar for physical activity.

There are plenty of choices: jogging, Nordic walking, cycling, swimming, playing volleyball or badminton, and much more.

If none of these fit, go for a walk three times a week for at least an hour.

 

If the topic of ergonomics in the office or home office appeals to you and you are interested in it more deeply, I can recommend my book “Wellness in the Office”. Combined with humorous drawings, I pass on 50+1 tips to make your office a little paradise.
