As few as 15 minutes of exercise per day may help you achieve benefits, which could include an additional 3 years of life . Furthermore, your risk of premature death may decrease by 4% for each additional 15 minutes of daily physical activity
00:59
A recent review observed a 22% lower risk of early death in individuals who exercised — even though they worked out less than the recommended 150 minutes per week . People who hit the 150-minute recommendation were 28% less likely to die early. What’s more, that number was 35% for those who exercised beyond this guidance Finally, some research links vigorous activity to a 5% greater reduction in risk compared to low- or moderate-intensity activities

Whole (unprocessed) diets higher in plant foods, healthy forms of protein and fats are consistently associated with better mental health outcomes. These diets are also high in fiber, which is essential for gut microbiota. We’re increasingly understanding that the gut is really the driver of health, including mental health, so keeping fiber intake high through the consumption of plant foods is very important.

Connection By having a diet high in healthy proteins and fats, your happiness will increase as these foods are linked to better mental health

This was Anthony Lopez

"So when I first started going to the gym, the workouts I was doing were super simple, it was all bodyweight stuff. Simple push ups using my knees, a lot of band work, some kettlebells, a lot of ropes. And I didn't do fast food. I started eating chicken, fish, and vegetables. I realized that food is to give me energy so I can crush it during the day, it's not to indulge myself and then go sit down and lay down and fall asleep and do nothing.

THIS IS ANTHONY NOW AFTER HARD WORK AND DEDICATION TO LOSE WEIGHT "I'd always wanted to try mountain biking, but even when I first started losing weight, I was 100 percent too big. However, by the time I got down to the high 400s, I was probably still a little too big, I still had weight to lose, but I felt a million times better. So I felt like it was possible . I got a mountain bike, started pedaling, and haven't looked back. I was so excited, and I just fell in love with mountain bike riding. I was riding all through Covid; while the gyms are closed, I was pedaling four or five times a week, putting a minimum of 10 to 15 miles on my bike every single time I went out".
