According to an article on NPR,
these bursts of activity aren’t adding up. Just one in four kids between the
ages of 12 and 15 get the recommended hour of activity a day—not good for the
overall mental and physical health of America’s youth.
The good news is that you can make the most of your downtime. Jogging
in place or bouncing on the balls of your feet can be enough to maintain
activity levels between structured exercises. And easy activities like long
walks, leisurely bike rides and skate boarding around town totally count!
Do you squeeze in a solid hour
of exercise each day? Tell us in the comments!
