Q. How many minutes a day can I walk. Any help would be great.

I’m Lesa 28 yrs old and I’m 14 weeks pregnant, this is my first pregnancy. I like to join in prenatal yoga. When can I join and until what time I should continue it. How many minutes a day can I walk. Any help would be great.
A1yes, agree with both two answers above..

a regular exercise before pregnancy and even during pregnancy are believed to be related with significant reduction in labor pain. besides, by doing regular exercise you can help strengthening your muscles and bones, and also stretch some pelvic muscle that will benefit when the time comes for you to deliver the wonderful baby.

I once wrote an article about water aerobic during pregnancy, you can check it out here :

A2i agree, there is no time limit, if you're just starting, begin with a moderately brisk pace for a mile, 3 days a week. Add a couple of minutes every week, pick up the pace a bit, and eventually add hills to your route. Whether you're a pro or a novice, go slowly for the first 5 minutes to warm up and use the last 5 minutes to cool down.
A3I started going to yoga classes at my 4 months but I couldn’t stand them, bcoz they made me sleepy. There is no time limit on when to join but the sooner is better and you can continue until you have the baby. And walking doesn't really have a time limit on it, the doctor advised me to follow the exercises being prescribed by the physiotherapist. Also keep in mind that you should not push yourself.

Q. I got an advice from my fitness instructor that doing exercise for 60 min is good for health.

I got an advice from my fitness instructor that doing exercise for 60 min is good for health. Is that right? And What if I don’t have time to exercise 60 minutes a day?
A1The best advice I've heard about exercise is that "you've got the rest of your life to get in perfect shape". Sure, 60 minutes a day would be great, but thinking you have to do 60 minutes a day to get benefit is a bit defeating for most folks. The thing is to start being more active doing things you enjoy and gradually, painlessly, and safely increase your activity until you achieve the fitness level you desire. Far better to take small steps that to bite off so much that you either hurt yourself or are so miserable doing it that you don't continue.
A2The advice of your fitness instructor is correct but the 60-minute suggestion is based on the National Academy of Science's recommendation for people who are trying to prevent weight gain, or keep themselves from regaining after weight loss, not for people who are trying to increase or maintain their cardio-respiratory fitness or health. There's plenty of research to show that 30 minutes of physical activity a day will help you gain lots of health and fitness benefits. Remember that you don't have to do all your exercise in one session. If you already exercise vigorously at the gym several times a week, there's no reason to quit. But if 60 minutes seems like too much for you, try 30 minutes a day as a starting goal. The most important thing is that you do something.

Q. While in a conversation with anyone they have about a minute before I loose tract and intrest, Is this ADHD

I always feel like I have to go full speed 24/7 and can never relax, sounds strange I know but it seems to be catching up with me.
Anot necessarily...i see that you are 31. those symptoms are new? if so- thee are other conditions that might cause them. hyperthyroid can get you in that state too. so it might be a good idea to go and get checked up.
