Whenever you have a doctor’s appointment they often tell you the typical things all physicians urge their patients to do: don’t smoke, go easy on the junk food, limit alcohol consumption and to stay active. Well, do you ever wonder if they end up taking their own advice?
To no surprise, doctor’s today are extremely active. A recent survey polled 5,000 physicians to reveal their personal healthy habits and it turns out that exercise is high on the list. In fact, the top workout among doctor’s under 40 years old is running. Yep, those doc’s lace up their sneaks and get moving!
Of course we know the physical and mental perks of staying active—especially running. For one, just a seven-minute run per day can protect your heart and a regular running routine is beneficial for your brain and mood. This is super important seeing as how doctor’s see and perform tough procedures and balance hectic schedules.
