American working mothers are at risk for low levels of physical activity, according to a study by Baylor University researchers. Less than half of mothers in a sample of 334 working women met recommended guidelines for physical activity. Meeting guidelines was associated with better quality of life and greater work productivity (as rated by the women themselves).

The study is available in Women’s Health (2020; doi:10.1177/1745506520929165).
