MODERN LIFE IS hectic, and there’s plenty of things to be stressed about.

But is exercise one of them?

New research released today by food services company Aramark suggests that the average person in the UK and Ireland is getting just 48 minutes of ‘moderate’ exercise each week – less than a third of the 150 minutes recommended.

Moderate exercise is here defined as that which makes the heart beat faster and breathing comes harder than normal.

But is the amount of exercise you get (or don’t get) each day a source of concern for you?
