Health Tip of the Day

Taking That First Step

Just about every tip on staying healthy includes a reminder to exercise. But how much exercise is enough? If your activity level is at or near zero, you should start moving, because any exercise is better than no exercise at all, says the American Heart Association. Start slow and work your way up to exercising for 30 to 60 minutes on most days of the week. Be sure to check with your health care provider before beginning an exercise program.
