EXERCISE ...



Dear readers, first of all, season’s greetings!
This week, in Alphabe-Thursday, ‘E’ IS FOR *E*XERCISE …
The longevity Olympians enjoy is within the reach of everyone, experts say.
Research published on the British Medical Journal (BMJ) website suggests athletes live 2.8 years longer on average than the average lifespan. But the rest of us could have a similar "survival advantage" by doing a little more exercise (the recommended level of physical activity for adults is 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise per week).  
With this in mind, here are a few examples to get us going:
Power walking (above)
But some encouragement is also important since, let’s face it, we’re not always in the mood and it’s often easier to exercise together:
And not forgetting, of course, a bit of stretching to start with:

Then some swimming:
Followed by some contact sports:

And finally, since we’ve earned it – some well-deserved rest:
Do you manage 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise per week as recommended?
