So how much activity should you do over the age of 65?
According to the department of health, it is recommended that at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity on most, preferably all, days.
If you find 30 minutes difficult right now, start with just 10 minutes once or twice a day. After 2 weeks, increase to 15 minutes twice a day.
If you can do more than 30 minutes, you will get extra benefits.
Over the course of the week, try to incorporate different types of activities.
Try to reduce the time you spend sitting down – break that time up as often as you can.
