23 and a Half

January 27, 2015

What if we told you one of the best things you can do for your health is related to the number 23.5?

Would it be to run 23.5 miles? Drink 23.5 ounces of water at breakfast? Do 23.5 pushups?

It’s much easier than that. According to Dr. Mike Evans in this quick video, one of the most impactful choices you can make is to limit your sedentary time to 23.5 hours. This means moving your body – walking, jumping, swimming, stretching, dancing, lifting, cleaning, working – for at least 30 minutes per day. That’s about 2% of your day. I watched this video in my Tufts class NUTR 272: Physical Activity, Nutrition & Health, and it made staying healthy seem much more manageable than I sometimes think it is.
