In brief: Regular exercise

The us has recently established a national guide for exercise among adults.
The recommendation is for at least 150 minutes of exercise every week. The exercise can be as low intensity as a brisk walk or anything more strenuous. It does not all need to be done at one time. More details may be found at: http://www.Cdc.Gov/physicalactivity/everyone/guidelines/adults.Html.
