Running for seven minutes a day makes a BIG difference

If you think that there's no point in exercising if you only have a few minutes, then think again.

Researchers have found that running for just seven minutes a day decreases the risk of dying from heart disease and stroke up to 45%. Not only that, but it can help you live up to three years longer than non-runners.

The study followed 55,137 participants over the course of 15 years between the ages of 18 and 100. Over that time, over 3,000 participants died. 1,217 of deaths were related to heart disease.

Apparently it doesn’t matter how slow you go, once you do go, for about seven minutes a day. Surely even the busiest among us could fit this into our schedule?!
