Yes, you hear enough about how you need to exercise, but don’t let that intimidate you if you’re more of a couch potato now. All you need to do is move a little, a habit that will help you live longer. ‘What most people want to achieve is healthy longevity. It’s not a cholesterol number.
It’s not a healthy valve. It’s being aware, active, and vital into your 90s, and being free of debilitating disease,’ says Dr. Klodas. People who achieve that stay active in their day-to-day lives, she says. It’s not a spinning class or a triathlon, but simple movement doing the things you love, like hiking on the weekends, walking with your dog, or taking a stroll to grab lunch.
