American sports guide

The American sports guide tells people how much essential exercise they need for health. The guide puts forward four basic suggestions for adults: all adults should avoid sitting still for a long time. It's better to have activities than not. Adults can get health benefits by participating in any physical exercise. Adults should accumulate at least 150 minutes (2 hours and 30 minutes) of moderate-intensity exercise per week or 75 minutes (1 hour and 15 minutes) of high-intensity exercise per week to achieve substantial health benefits. You can also combine moderate and high-intensity exercise. Exercise lasting at least 10 minutes is considered effective exercise and accumulated. Running for less than 10 minutes each time is not a practical exercise. One hundred fifty minutes of one-time moderate-intensity exercise is acceptable, but it is suggested that you'd better finish the exercise in a week. To obtain more and broader health benefits, adults can increase their activity. The more exercise you take, the greater the health benefits. That is to say; there is only a lower limit and no upper limit in a strict sense. If you can take part in 300 minutes (5 hours) of moderate-intensity exercise every week, or 150 minutes (2 hours and 30 minutes) of high-intensity exercise every week, you will get more health improvement than just meeting the introductory amount of activity. In addition to taking part in aerobic exercise such as running, adults should also carry out some strength training. The frequency of strength exercise is suggested to be two or more times a week because these activities can bring different health benefits from aerobic exercise.

Awareness of sports in today's society

Health is an important "feasible ability" and "basic freedom" for citizens to enjoy a happy life. According to the World Health Organization definition, "health not only refers to the absence of disease or weakness but also refers to a person's physical, psychological and social integrity.". Social health is also an essential dimension of personal health. For a long time, China has paid more attention to its citizens' physical and mental health, but not enough attention to social health. Measuring social health is conducive to a more comprehensive understanding of personal health status and the impact of disease on patients' physiology, psychology, and social adaptability
