Exercise reduces the number of calories burned at rest in people with obesity, according to a new study by researchers from the Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology (SIAT) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the University of Roehampton.

Do these 6 exercises every day to build resilience and mental strength
