    What are my choices for moderately intense exercise?

    • Anya

      As mentioned in the video, fast-walking, hiking, & biking are all forms of moderately intense activity, as well as light jogging and leisurely swimming. A good indication that you are working out at a moderate level is a noticeable increase in heart & breathing rates – you should be able to talk, but you shouldn’t be able to sing. Regular exercise is definitely beneficial for both the body and mind!(see http://nutritionfacts.org/videos/reversing-cognitive-decline

    shoot–bad news for me. Will try to do better! As a teacher, I often work till 7:00 pm. Breast cancer is in my maternal side-mom (passed form it) her sister and her daughter (my cousin) -survived, but cousin ended up with liver cancer later that took her. Made the switch to plant based eating—Food for thought here….Maybe time to actually use my elliptical machine!

    Surprise, surprise…I’ve never heard anybody else say that – ever! (except maybe Ruth Heidrich) Sounds like it’s time for a major lifestyle change!

    Two of the best exercise methods require much less than 60 minutes: For optimal strength, muscle, & bone health, an HIT session can be completed in 20 minutes. For conditioning & fat loss, a Tabata workout is over in 4 minutes. Anything more is counterproductive.
