30 Minutes Per Day

Could you give up a half hour for your health?  Physical therapists are often in contact with the general population, some who exercise religiously and some who have not exercised a day in their life.  Often after patients move on and become clients or reenter the community to continue with their own rehabilitation and fitness they start to do less and not participation in general fitness.  The story I always here is "I don't have time for that".

That is where Dr. Mike Evens comes in.  He is a physician who has a big interest in preventative medicine, as all health care professionals do.  Dr Mike Evens explains that "there are many things that you can do that are incredibly important for your health and I wouldn't want you to minimize your efforts in any one category. But I wanted to know, what comes first?"

In this viral video (watched over 3 million times), Dr Evens answers a challenging question: What is the single best thing we can do for our health?
