How your weekly Budget moves with you
Boost mood! Improve self-esteem! Lower risk of disease! If the benefits of staying active came in a box, it could boast all of the above. We’d also slap one more benefit on the label: Regular physical activity paired with healthier eating habits leads to more weight loss than healthier eating habits alone. It’s also the single best predictor of who keeps weight off and who doesn’t.
Who doesn’t want in on that? But, first, a Q: What does physical activity actually look like?
Is it you dripping in sweat? No. Is it you training for a 10K? Only if that’s your thing. Ultimately, activity looks like things that don’t necessarily have to look like working out. Daily stuff—cleaning your house, weeding your garden, chasing your dog—it all counts. Literally.
