The National Center for Health reported that only 23% of Americans get enough exercise, leaving a majority unhealthy and unhappy.
By committing 150 minutes per week or 21 minutes a day to exercise one can reduce depression by 30%, promote improved sleep, happiness, self-esteem and reduce stress. Yet, the average American spends 144 minutes a day on social media.
Does that motivate you to stop your scroll and go for a 15-minute stroll? We hope so but keep reading before you do! ????
