    Great post. According to the piece, small amounts of exercise provide real benefits in just a few weeks. And not rigid programs, but simply moving as long as we wish.

    This ties into our first principle: Spend time outside everyday. Whether you’re walking or playing or just enjoying the sun for a bit, you’ll be reducing stress and enjoying yourself more. Plus, outside in the sun, you’ll be getting some important Vitamin D.
