How much exercise do you need to do to have a longer route?

Everyone knows that a healthier life requires regular physical activity. But, how much time of exercise do you need to do to have a longer life? Analyzing the habits of more than 100,000 adults, researchers observed a reduction in mortality in those who do between 150 and 300 minutes a week.

The number, however, varies according to the exercise load. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), adults need 150 to 300 minutes (2.5 to 5 hours) of moderate physical activity. If you opt for something more intense, the time drops to 75 to 150 (1 hour and 15 minutes to 2 hours and a half) minutes per week.
