Jog an hour, live longer

A new study said, slow jogging for one hour a week can add five years to your life. The study, observed on 20,000 people over nearly 40 years in Copenhagen City Heart, found that gentle jogging increased longevity.

The study group included 1116 male joggers and 762 female joggers. Researchers then monitored their health over the next four decades and found that people who jogged at a “slow or average” pace for between 60 minutes and 2.5 hours a week were less likely to die than those who exercised more or not at all.

Male joggers lived an average of 6.2 years longer and female joggers lived an extra 5.6 years, study said.

Now it can be said that regular jogging increases longevity and you don’t actually need to do that much to reap the benefits.

Mortality is also lower in people who are moderate joggers, than in non-joggers or those undertaking extreme levels of exercise. So in your regular jogging you never need to feel very breathlessness, a little breathlessness is enough.
