Dr. Mike Evans posted a video on his YouTube page a few weeks ago of a speech he gave entitled “23 and 1/2 hours: What is the single best thing we can do for our health?”

I’ll leave you with only three quotes from the video, along with a brief note to put it in context. Please watch the video and gather the rest of this amazing info yourselves.

This is POWERFUL STUFF, everyone…

As always, please leave your own thoughts, comments and questions at the end of this post!

~ Discussing what can be done to most effectively improve certain aspects of peoples’ lives. (Reduction of progression of dementia, reduced progression of diabetes, anxiety, and blood pressure increase in quality of life, to name a few)
“The best thing you can do for your health is spend half an hour being active, maybe an hour…”

~ Explaining a finding in “Aerobic Centre Longitudinal Study, by Prof. Steven Blair
“So LOW FITNESS was the strongest predictor of death.”

~ Ok. Exercise is good. We get it.
“So if exercise is the medicine, what’s the dose? … essentially, more activity is better. But I must say that the rate of return seems to decline after 20 or 30 minutes per day.”

Thanks to my friends at Alpine CrossFit for this one!
