Having to puff a few times a day from a strenuous job or chasing a taxi or bus can have an unintended impact on your life expectancy and major groups of premature deaths such as cancer and heart disease.
A study just published in the medical journal Nature Medicine by the Charles Perkins Center at the University of Sydney (Australia) found that in normal life, vigorous physical activity lasts 1-2 minutes. The day has a major impact on health.
Such short, intense exercise, just a few breaths away—whether it’s chasing the bus, brisk running an emergency errand, playing with the kids…—for 3 to 4 minutes a day, and you’ll reduce all-cause and cancer-related deaths by up to 40 %; it also reduced the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease by 49%.
Those who breathed continuously for up to 11 minutes a day had a 65 percent lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease and a 49 percent lower risk of dying from cancer than those who didn’t need to breathe once a day. .
The 25,000 participants in the above study, collected using wearable devices by the Biobank, the UK’s main biomedical database, were not regular exercisers.
Even more surprising, when the impact on the lives of these people who exercised regularly was compared to that of another 62,000 people who exercised regularly, the benefits were found to be the same.
These short bursts of high-intensity physical activity affect many organ systems, especially the cardiovascular system, similar to high-intensity interval training (HIIT). , a kind of exercise. In recent years, exercise has gained popularity for its many physical benefits.
The above findings suggest that if you don’t have the time or enjoy exercising, making small changes to the way you do things each day may be the answer.
“No routine, no preparation, no club membership or special skills required. This exercise is all about using more energy to get up to speed while walking or doing chores.” – Emmanuel Stamakakis, Charles Perkins Center, quoted in Tech Daily Professor’s words.
