    A response from Serene; The evidence to date does appear to indicate that more intensive exercise does have greater benefits, although as we showed, exact dosages are not currently clear. So rest assured that the current activities that you’re doing definitely still have benefit.

    Our systematic review included exercise modes such as weight training and high intensity interval training, which by their nature do not necessarily go for 30 mins and have rest intervals when heart rate will dip. So it’s not true that you need to exercise ‘intensely’ for at least 30 mins continuously to see benefits.

    For you personally, if you’d like to try to increase the intensity of your walking to increase your heart rate, you could try to sustain walking at a fast pace, or better yet try to walk up hills or if you have access to a treadmill you can add an incline. Often walking at a comfortable pace but going uphill is very effective at raising heart rate.
