It is estimated (in the Before Times) that the average American spends almost 8.5 hours per week in a car. A major cause of this lack of movement: commuting. Swap out the car for something a little more stimulating, like biking or walking. Studies show that the ideal amount of steady cardio – like the aforementioned activities – is around 40-60 minutes and reduces the risk of heart disease and other illnesses down the line. If you live a mile from work, that’s roughly 40 minutes of cardio in a round trip if you walk, or about 25 minutes if you bike. Intimidated by big hills or the possibility of wearing on your joints? Try an e-bike instead, or an electric scooter. Don’t live close to work? Try parking further from your workplace and enjoy a walk before heading in.
