As an older adult (68 years) I am interested on medical literature that indicates that 500 steps a day 8 days a month has a positive effect on health.
Maybe I should be ignoring the exercise recommendations by the CDC and start concentrating on what my insurance company recommends by providing incentives. After all my improved health actually will save Humana money, whereas, CDC gains nothing from my improved health.
Is 500 steps a day 8 days a month sufficient for most of us? If it is not why would Humana change the exercise incentives?
For the recommendations of the CDC see: Adults Need More Physical Activity | Physical Activity | CDC
What do people think?
Thank you for your help.
