People who increased the number of steps they took in a day from 1,000 to 3,000 reduced their mortality risk by 12% - those who hit 10,000 steps cut their risk by 46%! And if you can step up your activity level by exercising longer and harder, you could lower your risk of heart failure up to 35%. As for your memory: a new study shows that higher aerobic fitness is linked to improved cognitive function. So, move to improve your health!
