For busy people, "the key is not being intimidated by exercise," said Dr. Bryan Henry, an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, N.Y.
"No one after an hour-long commute home from work is going to want to jump on a elliptical machine," Henry said. "But just short exercise commitments can work. That could mean walking farther from the parking lot or taking a 10-minute walk here and there. It can easily add up to the equivalent of a 40-minute brisk walk."
