World Physical Activity Day Captured in 6 Funny and Motivating Tweets

Share

In case you missed it, yesterday was World Physical Activity Day. The goal? To encourage all of us to get off our duffs and move around more—which is always a good thing. We know that adults who don’t get the recommended amount of exercise per week (at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity movement) are at a higher risk of diabetes, depression, cancer, and more. Science has also shown that not exercising can raise your risk of heart disease as much as obesity does. But the simplest reason to stay active? It makes you feel good.

Turns out Twitter users are all for working that body too. Here are six of the impressive stats and chuckle-inducing GIFs that were tweeted out yesterday, and made us want to get our sweat on asap.

Yep, even waddling counts as exercise.

But there are endless ways to get your muscles firing.

Here’s an impressive fact, courtesy of London’s Newcomb Library: Walking briskly for just 75 minutes a week can add nearly two whole years to your life.

We love that Cancer Research UK called out dancing and gardening as alternative ways to raise your heart rate. Treadmill who?

No matter what kind of workout we’re talking about, keep in mind that This Girl Can crush it.

Just don’t let this happen to you…

Happy sweating!
