For every 1 hour of movement you add 2 hours of life expectancy. That 4% seems even smaller now, huh? http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/HealthyLiving/PhysicalActivity/Physical-Activity_UCM_001080_SubHomePage.jsp

I take a roundabout way to work - alight from the bus one stop early, turn toward the highway and walk back to the thoroughfare, around the buildings to the corner past my job then back. Takes about 20 minutes then I only need to worry about an additional 10 - which I sometimes do at my desk before others get there (boxing / upper body moves).
