(CNN)Could you find 10 minutes in your day to increase your physical activity? It might be lifesaving, according to a new study.

More than 110,000 US deaths could be prevented each year if adults over 40 added 10 minutes of daily moderate to vigorous physical activity to their normal routines, according to the study published Monday in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine.
An increase of 20 or 30 minutes could lead to even more lives saved, the study noted.

"We know exercise is good for us. This study provides additional evidence of the benefits at the population level: if all adults in the United States (over age 40) were to exercise just a bit more each day, a large number of deaths could be prevented each year," said Pedro Saint-Maurice, the study's first author and an epidemiologist at the National Cancer Institute, via email.

The study used accelerator data the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey recorded from participants ages 6 and older between 2003 and 2006. Researchers then looked at the activity levels of nearly 5,000 participants ages 40 to 85 and tracked death rates through the end of 2015.

The method used to conduct the study was rigorous, said Peter Katzmarzyk, professor of pediatric obesity and associate executive director for population and public health sciences at Louisiana State University's Pennington Biomedical Research Cent

Suppose you walk back & forth in your apartment or home. Continuously for 20 minutes. (longer than the 10 in the article)

And also, you walk up and down a number of stairs while you walk. Or walk indoors at the library or food store while you
shop with a shopping cart. Not too difficult. Think about it. You do not have to go to the gym, health center, or even walk
outside. Inside back & forth, up and down the stairs. Or at the grocery store with a shopping cart. (& buy some food
at the same time.) ...That's all to the plan to improve your health. (Yes we must find that time, every day)

they would even time their bathroom breaks with their trek to the printers - then they would complain about how they couldn't lose weight. Inevitably when I mentioned exercise, they claimed they didn't have the time. Yet their conversations frequently involved TV binging of entire series. LAZY!!!!!!!!!! The worst part was when they'd tell me they envied me because I could eat what I wanted and not get fat -WTF, I average 17,000 steps a day and I do aerobics, weights and kettlebells!
