small changes, BIG BENEFITS

A recent report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that less than half of the population engages in the minimum recommended level of physical activity of 30 minutes of moderate exercise most or all days of the week. And 15.6 percent are inactive, reporting 10 minutes or less of activity each day.

Yet, you can reap enormous health benefits with no-sweat exercise—as long as you know what to do. In fact, everything that gets you moving—from gardening to sex—can and will contribute to your health. It's called cardiometabolic exercise and an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School explains how it works.

How do your daily activities stack up?
