A new study has found that less than 10 minutes of exercise a week can increase longevity.
The study was conducted over a period of 12 years and involved over 88,000 participants.
Participants who engaged in any amount of physical activity had a lower risk of death compared to those who were inactive.
The benefits of exercise were seen across all age groups and both sexes.
Even small amounts of exercise, such as walking or gardening, were found to be beneficial.
The study suggests that any amount of physical activity is better than none.
The World Health Organization recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week.
The findings of this study may encourage more people to engage in physical activity, even if it's just for a few minutes a week.
