Light exercise improves health

Bowling is good light intensity exercise
You won't get any fashion points for wearing bowling shoes,
but the light intensity exercise will do your body good

You don't have to kill yourself at the gym in order to make a significant, positive impact on your health.

According to a study published in PLOS ONE, 30 minutes of light intensity exercise can improve your health if you are overweight or obese and suffering with type 2 diabetes.

This is great news! If you get moving as opposed to choosing a sedentary activity, you can lower your BMI and waist circumference, and enjoy the positive health outcomes.

Consider some ways that you can add light intensity exercise to your day:

  • Take a stroll around the neighborhood after dinner
  • Walk around the mall with a friend
  • Walk the neighbor's dog
  • Watch your favorite television show while you are on the treadmill
  • Bike around your neighborhood park
  • Walk to places you usually drive to: school, church, the library, the post office
  • Learn how to ballroom dance
  • Vacuum your house
  • Mow your own lawn
  • Sweep the driveway
  • Hop on the stationary bike and read a magazine
  • Walk around town while on your lunch break
  • Take the family bowling
