One way to view activity level and health outcome is to measure health outcomes based on amount of non-active time.
To categorize the activity level of your own position at work, ask yourself: How many minutes each working day do I spend doing the types of activities described as light, moderate, or vigorous?
So what is moderate and vigorous activity? Activity levels can be roughly assessed using breathing and heart rate.
Since 2008 the U.S. government has issued activity guidelines. So despite the recommendations, which are for a minimum amount of activity, is there benefit to more vigorous activity?
It seems that everyone knows someone who is using an activity monitor these days. They come under a variety of brands including Fitbit, NikeFuel, Jawbone Up and others. So how accurate are they?
