Incredibly, more than one out of every three adults are also obese.

When you’re juggling work, kids, cleaning the house, doing errands and everything else on your list, making it to the gym can easily fall lower and lower in priority. However, studies have shown that even small amounts of exercise can be vitally beneficial to your health.
According to the Mayo Clinic and Psychology Today, small amounts of exercise can reap huge rewards. The government recommends roughly an hour of aerobic exercise every day, and it doesn’t have to be all at once. Even 30 minutes where your heart rate is elevated above normal will have a positive benefit on your health.
If you don’t have enough time to dedicate an hour at the gym before or after work, there are some easy ways you can sneak some exercise into your routine at lunch or perhaps while you’re waiting for the kids at soccer practice.
An easy way to slip in some low-impact exercise is to make walking a part of your routine. Taking a morning walk at a brisk pace will get your blood flowing, immediately boosting your energy levels, giving you a dose of endorphins, getting you ready for the day.
Unlike a morning run, a brisk walk is attainable and enjoyable no matter if you were up all night with a screaming baby or running over your notes for an important business meeting. You can also add walking to other aspects of your day by taking a walk around the block at lunch, taking the stairs at work or even walking to the office in the morning.
There’s a reason pro athletes routinely include jump rope in their workout regimen. It is one of the most demanding and cardio-intensive exercises you can do while also promoting strength, power, stamina, and footwork.
Many modern offices have begun to adopt stability balls as an alternative option to a chair. Switching your desk chair out for a stability ball forces you to keep your balance while you work, activating your core muscles and increasing calorie burn while at rest.

You know that the cardiovascular system is responsible for pumping blood and oxygen throughout your system, right? And that the endocrine system manages hormones? And that your nervous system relays messages throughout your body?
Well, underlying all these systems is an astoundingly complex electrical system.
This electrical system is busy sending an almost uncountable number of messages to the muscles, bones, brain, and the cells. The human brain is the home to approximately 100 billion neurons, each firing about 200 times every second.
Sometimes it feels like there are more types and brands of water than drops in the ocean. You go to the grocery store and discover a huge shelf packed with different brands of water that all claim to be health-beneficial. Add in the hundreds of in-house water purifiers, and it can seem like a “sea” of confusing options (cue the pun).
Thankfully, your choice doesn’t have to be that complicated.
