“How Little Exercise Can You Get Away With?”

It is an obvious and scientifically-proven fact that exercise is directly linked to improving mental health.  But according to an article published a week ago by The New York Times, reaping the mental benefits of exercise may come easier than thought.  Apparently, if mental health is your primary goal than as little as 20 minutes of activity a week may be enough to boost your mood.  How easy is that?!

Now of course, everyone’s physical needs are different, as the effect of exercise is contingent on one’s health history, current health status, lifestyle, etc.  But for the general population, this is great news!  Make yourself feel better in 20 minutes? Easy.  Be healthy, be happy.

The more technical analysis can be found in the NYT article here .
