Getting active this summer has never been easier according to experts.
The common idea that adults (18-64) must be active for 30-60 minutes per day to get health benefits is being disproven.
"Ideally, if you want to get the biggest bang for your buck, you would accumulate 150 minutes per week," said Ciara Kallal, exercise specialist with Alberta Heartland Primary Care Network.
Ten minutes per day is the minimum magic number according to experts, but that time must be spent doing moderate to vigorous activity.
Kallal added all their information comes from the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines, which has endured an extensive amount of research.
A few ways to increase physical activity everyday include: parking your car farther away from work and walking, walking during your lunch hour and going for a bike ride.
The Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines recommend children (5-11 years) and youth (12-17 years) should accumulate 60 minutes of moderate-to vigorous aerobic physical activity every day.
