As it turns out, the size of your gut doesn’t particularly matter either, at least in these studies.
At least, it does in Finland during middle age. (Swimming counts too- even though the sweat might not be visible.) So here’s what I’m thinking about:
- Sitting all day in front of this screen will kill me eventually
- I do exercise, almost every day, but I don’t sweat enough
- The time I spend exercising is well worth it, unless I just like the idea of being (marginally) richer and dead
- As I get closer, it hurts more to exercise, therefore…
- Bring on the hurtin’!!!
I guess this isn’t good news for you pain-averse types. Frankly, my own, personal body isn’t thrilled with the news, either. But then, who said life was easy?
