Heart Healthy Tips

Move More

20 minutes of vacuuming is like walking one mile
30 minutes of grocery shopping every other week for a year is like walking a marathon
If you walk 1,000 miles a year in your lifetime, you’ll have walked around the world twice!
Studies show that for every hour of walking, life expectancy may increase by two hours.
Unleash your inner child with fun games like chase, tag, and kid-friendly obstacle courses
If you’re too busy to carve out time for a longer walk, split it up into shorter sessions that work for you
Put the screens on hold. Instead of heading right for the TV after dinner, take a walk, practice a sport, or play a game of hide-and-seek.
Tune into fitness during TV time. Walk or jog in place or on a treadmill, lift weights, or do yoga while you watch your favorite shows.
Get your garden on. Gardening, mowing and yard work are a great way to get active outdoors.

Be Well

Take a break from your to-do list to add a few minutes of calm to your day
