What you might not know? Even micro strolls come with cardio perks. Challenge yourself to one of these goals every day.

Walk 2 minutes per hour and...
Live longer! Spending just 120 seconds each hour moving instead of sitting may lower your risk of dying younger by 33 percent, found a recent study in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology.

Walk 5 minutes per hour and...
Burn up to 4,000 extra kilojoules in a week, according to research from the University of Utah. When you add it up, in a 16-hour day (we're assuming you sleep for 8) you're clocking 80 minutes of light activity.

Walk 10 minutes a day and...
Safeguard your arteries. Six hours of sitting restricts blood flow to your legs, which may up your risk for arterial disease, a precursor for heart attack or stroke. Just 10 minutes of walking may protect you, a new study shows.
