You can’t put a price tag on happiness, and for many, the pursuit of that happiness is just as important as the means to get there.
The simple fact is that for many of us, living well requires us to exercise more and be more active.
This isn’t a new idea.
As a result, the latest research has found that physical activity has become one of the most important measures of a person’s health.
The latest research into physical activity is the latest of a growing body of research showing that the exercise that people do to keep themselves active can actually improve their health.
It’s called the ‘endgame hypothesis’, and it suggests that we should be doing more exercise to improve our health.
A growing body.
In this latest research, researchers from the University of Auckland looked at a large number of people over a 10-year period.
They compared the physical activity levels of about 500,000 participants in a representative sample of New Zealanders.
They found that people who exercised a little more than once a week had a 33 per cent lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease (CVD) than those who did not.
People who exercised more than three times a week, however, had a 40 per cent higher risk of dying from CVD than those that did not exercise.
The researchers also found that those who were physically active but also regularly worked were 40 per year more likely to live a long life than those with lower levels of physical activity.
In other words, people who regularly exercised were more likely than people who didn’t to live into their 80s.
“People who are physically active are healthier than those people who aren’t,” says Dr David Gower, a professor of public health and public health sciences at the University.
“Physical activity may help to lower risk factors for some diseases but it’s not going to solve everything.”
So if you’ve been working out regularly for years, or if you’re a busy parent with kids in school, you may not be exercising regularly enough.
That’s where the ‘edge fitness’ approach comes in.
Dr Gower says people should start taking exercise more seriously now.
“It’s not enough just to exercise, it’s about being physically active,” he says.
“If you want to live long, and have a better quality of life, you need to be physically active.”
Dr Gowers says the best way to get in shape is by walking or cycling.
But there are other methods to get fit.
“There are some things that people should do like get out and do some physical activity in the morning or after lunch, or in the evening,” he explains.
“Those are good ways to get into shape.
But if you do the exercise, you’ll probably need to do it more than twice a week.
It’s important to keep it up.”
The research suggests that exercise can also help you stay fit.
For example, if you get a massage, you might feel better if you massage your muscles and get your blood pumping, rather than just using the massage as a form of exercise.
“That might be the case for people who are more physically active, because that’s one of their main motivations for getting exercise,” Dr Gower explains.
If you’re looking for a way to build muscle, Dr Gowers suggests taking a bike ride or a walking exercise class.
He says you can even do a ‘super marathon’, with two or more days of intense activity at once.
“You can do it a lot, and you can actually feel better,” he advises.
“And if you can maintain that pace for a long time, it might not be as difficult to get out of it as it is to get back in.”
It’s also worth looking into adding other physical activities to your routine.
“When you’re doing some of the exercises that you might be doing in the gym, you can use that as a way of improving your mood,” Dr Karp says.
You can also increase your cardiovascular fitness by doing a regular cardio session or exercise in the afternoon.
For those who are already physically active or who want to get active, there’s an app that can help you find the physical activities you like.
The app is called Fit for Life, and it allows you to upload your exercise logs, your goals and how many minutes you’re spending at each activity.
It also allows you a visual reminder of what you’re going to do on a certain day, and gives you suggestions on where you can go and what to do that day.
“In a lot of cases, that’s just an indication of how much you want a workout, and a visual indication that you’re at your target intensity,” Dr Waddington says.
The app has also been used to track your physical activity throughout the day.
And if that doesn’t work for you, there are some other ways to make yourself more active, including doing some Pilates.
“Pilates are actually a pretty good
