Add years to your life in just 15 minutes per day

Add years to your life in just 15 minutes per day

Shedding pounds may not be the only reason to participate in a little physical activity, as a recent study from Taiwan's National Health Research Institutes indicates that a mere 15 minutes of moderate exercise per day can add as much as three years to your life, according to a report from Reuters.

If you're looking for easy ways to get active, try a few of these fun activities:

1. Walk the dog. A brisk 15 minute walk will do wonders, for both your health and that of your furry canine friend. If you don't have a dog, bring along a friend or significant other. You'll be adding years to their lives, too!

2. Skip some rope. Jump roping isn't just for young girls, it's a fun cardio workout for all ages. So plug in those headphones, secure them with an exercise armband and skip away.

3. Sex. Not only is it a great way to stay active and fit, but it's fun!

4. Play with kids (or grandkids). Children are active little creatures. Anyone who has been a parent knows that chasing around a few toddlers is sure to burn calories. If you don't have kids of your own, offer to babysit for a friend or relative.
