Study Shows Sky: Still Blue
Washington Post today tells us that exercising daily could add up to four years to your life. (It’s actually 1.3-3.7 years).
I thought this was interesting, but there’s a small problem. At one hour per day, from the time you’re 18 until roughly the average age that a person will live to, you’ll spend 2.46 years exercising. The net gain is .04 years, or two weeks.
The benefits from exercising are many, but sadly, it seems increasing your overall lifespan is not necessarily one of them. Especially since the 2.5 years comes at the END of your life, whereas the time spent exercising is during, you know, the real part.
