Exercise to live four years longer
London: Exercising can extend your life expectancy by nearly four years, a new study has revealed.
New research gathered studies on the question of whether physical activity increases life expectancy.
The studies offered a range of answers, but among the results, the median increase in life expectancy of both men and women came to 3.7 years each.
The German researchers also discovered that getting your exercise as leisure, rather than, as part of your work may be more beneficial, Discovery News reported.
But that could also be a reflection of an overall healthier lifestyle among those people who took time to workout during their leisure time.
The research was recently published in the Journal of Aging Research.
