Get Moving! 10 Extra Minutes of Exercise Saves Lives

Get moving with an extra 10 minutes of exercise!

By AdventHealth staff

Have you ever been told to take the stairs instead of the elevator or park a little further from the grocery store to get some light exercise in? Researchers have recently calculated new numbers showing that even short bursts of physical activity can dramatically improve your physical health.

If every U.S. adult ages 40 to 85 increased their exercise by just 10 minutes per day, the number of deaths would decrease by 6.9%, with more than 110,000 lives saved each year.

 A Little Goes a Long Way

How, exactly, can such a small amount of exercise make a difference? Those 10 minutes of motion can pay off nearly instantly. Not long after a moderate-to-vigorous bout of physical activity, you’ll find:

  • Your anxiety decreases
  • Your blood pressure drops
  • Your sleep improves

And over time, each active moment adds up. The long-term benefits of regular physical activity include:

  • Improved coordination and balance, reducing your risk of falling
  • Cancer prevention
  • Reduced risk for heart disease, stroke and Type 2 diabetes
  • Stronger bones and muscles
  • Warding off weight gain

All these factors contribute to the life-extending benefits of movement.

Find Movement You Enjoy

Any kind of exercise that gets your heart pumping — and that you’ll stick to — is a great exercise to choose. Just make sure it’s at least of moderate intensity, meaning you breathe harder and can’t sing but can still speak.

Traditional workouts such as walking, running, and cycling are always options. But also consider:

  • Doing yard work, like raking or pushing a lawn mower
  • Playing a new sport, like pickleball or gaga ball with friends
  • Dancing to the beat, like doing a few bachata, cha-cha slide or tango steps
Start Moving and Feel Whole

You can start moving right now. Set down your laptop or phone and take a brisk walk around the block or grab your grandkids and play a game of tag outside. Remember that even just 10 extra minutes of movement a day can help you live a longer, healthier life.

I stopped into Dash Sports while on vacation, after hearing about this store and reading reviews that they can help with foot issues and in particular, plantar fasciitis. I have been having foot pain for a year and even after a visit to a podiatrist and getting an insert, i didn't leave with any useful information except i'm getting old supposedly. Kimberly at Dash Sports gave me all of the information I was looking for a year ago. She worked with me one on one, analyzed my walk and how it was lending itself to my foot pain, and set me up with proper fitting, supportive shoes, socks, and a night sock. Faith restored that I'm finally on a healing path. I highly recommend this store.

Nik and Annette helped my wife and I find shoes for 2 completely different issues. They spent the time and listened to our issues to give us a wide selection of shoes for us to try. 10/10 will be going back and will always recommend.

Dash Sports is the only place to go when you need personalized service and sales people who know their products. You can certainly go somewhere else and get less expensive shoes, but you will not get the level of service that Dash provides. I have shopped with Dash for over five years and would not go anywhere else. Today I worked with Kimberly and she is FANTASTIC. She spent a lot of time with me, brought out several pairs of shoes and shared her professional observations on how I was walking in each pair and at the end we picked the shoe that felt good and provided the support that I needed. You will not get this level of service at any other store in this area. I highly recommend Dash Sports.

I love their expertise in fitting running shoes. Have been coming here since I moved to Clermont a few years ago. Just got a new pair last week and relied on their fitting expertise.

Annette, was very helpful from the start, I mentioned my back pain, and she took it from there. We tried on a few pairs of shoes until we had the right pair, she made sure I was comfortable walking in them. Thank you so much.

I live in Austin TX and I. Have. NEVER. Experienced a shoe store as friendly and informative as the Clermont location. Annette really took time to show me different options and reasons for her recommendations. I feel confident the shoes I bought will be worth it! Thank you Annette, Dash.

I needed a pair of shoes for work. Nik was super patient and extremely knowledgeable. You can tell he’s passionate about running and helping people find the right shoe. I tried on close to a dozen shoes, even hopped on the treadmill, and with all of that he answered my questions with enthusiasm. Once I settled on a pair he then helped my wife who was looking to replace her current running shoes. All around exceptional customer service experience. Thank you Nik!
