It's common wisdom that regular exercise is good for our health, but what constitutes "regular?" And what kind of exercise is most beneficial? Experts often recommend at least 150 minutes of moderately intense activity each week, which they also say is best broken up into shorter sessions you can do daily. Exercising for just 20 minutes per day, can help improve your physical and mental health as well as help you live longer. Recent studies, however, indicate that longevity is even more closely linked to higher-intensity workouts and between 150-270 minutes per week, which translates to 20-40 minutes per day. There is also evidence that team sports are even better than solo activities.
But it's crucial to not turn potential roadblocks into a reason not to exercise at all—even if you don't have a gym membership or you don't like team sports, there are plenty of ways to work out at home that you'll enjoy enough to keep up with. Here are a few ideas to get your body moving daily:
I'ts important to remember that doing something is always better than doing nothing, so even if you aren't up for a 20-minute HIIT routine every day that doesn't mean you should throw in the towel. There's ample evidence that even a little bit of exercising on a regular basis can increase longevity. And if you don't have on already, consider getting a steps tracker. You might be surprised how much activity you do already, like mowing the lawn, vacuuming the house, shopping for groceries, and walking from meeting to meeting. Seeing the numbers go up is a great motivator.

When it comes to money, most people can benefit greatly from a little bit of guidance. You probably know what a financial advisor or financial planner does. But there’s another professional you may want to add to your finance team: a money coach.
Whereas financial advisors help clients manage and invest their money wisely, money coaches look at a client’s overall financial situation and help set financial goals—like creating a family budget, figuring out a debt payment schedule, or building a nest egg.
Unlike financial advisors, financial coaches don’t need any official certification—many are social media influencers. Still, they can be helpful for people who want to have a better understanding of personal finance but don’t necessarily learn best by reading. Money coaches can turn the theoretical into practical advice focused on your specific situation. A money coach may be a good option for you if:
As the cost of healthcare for pets continues to go up, having pet insurance might seem more necessity than luxury. Choosing the right pet insurance can be tricky, though, given the usual insurance fine print. Here are three of the main things to keep in mind when shopping around:
Ask your vet’s office for insurance recommendations. They don’t work directly with pet insurance providers, but they’ve no doubt heard positive (and negative) reviews from other customers about different providers.

Although the idea of “me time” has become more popular, there are people who equate being alone with loneliness—and no one wants that. Solitude can seem hard to find if you live in a busy city or a crowded house, but intentionally carving out time for yourself can have positive mental and physical health benefits. If, that is, you embrace being alone.
Experts say that if being alone is your choice, you’re much more likely to enjoy the solitude and less likely to succumb to loneliness. But this doesn’t mean you have to become a hermit to be happy alone. It means you’re able to find happiness in solo pursuits of your choosing— exercising, birdwatching, creating art, or even working.
If you struggle to do something you love when you’re alone, you may want to try an activity that boosts endorphin levels. After all, if you’re getting a happiness high from the activity, you’re more apt to do it again. Physical activity like gardening or beachcombing can work here (you don’t have to go to the gym to be physical), but you can also do volunteer work. Studies show volunteering makes people feel more fulfilled, and solo volunteer work may even be something you can do from home—think preparing meals for houseless people or making hats for preemie babies.
The Japanese practice of “forest bathing” is a poetic term for something research has shown time and again: Spending time in nature is very good for us. Taking a solo hike in the woods is great, but movement isn’t necessary. You could knit in the park on your lunch break or watch flickers dig for ants in the backyard. It can also be a meditative experience, immersing yourself in the natural environment to allow you to take it in with all of your senses.
Treat yourself to something special that you usually need company to justify, like dinner at a fancy restaurant or a ticket to the opera. And this doesn’t need to be expensive or even outside the home. You could cook a favorite meal, for instance, served on your good dishes. You don’t have to skimp on things you’d enjoy just because you’re flying solo.
