When we talk about exercise at national level, are there sports activities at the family and at the workplace? If you have it, do it intensively. You can ride public transportation to the office and get off to walk around a few hundred meters/kilometers to the office. This is called exercise. Likewise with cycling, so many ways to keep exercising while doing routine activities," he explained.
