Let’s Exercise! Exercise at any time, any place
Performing exercise regularly (20-30 minutes a day) is essential for wellbeing and health, but not many people actually do it. Prof Nosaka will summarise the importance of regular exercise, and show some simple exercises that can be performed at home and work. One type of exercises that he suggests is “eccentric exercises” such as sitting to a chair slowly and walking down stairs. Sitting to a chair slowly 10 times a day may be minimal stimulus that our body requires every day to maintain its function and condition.
