Get Moving to Get Healthy
Did you know that inactivity nearly doubles a woman's risk for heart disease? But it doesn't take a drastic change to put yourself on the path to better heart health. Studies have shown that as little as 30 minutes per day of moderate exercise can reduce the risk of heart disease by 30 – 50 percent. In addition to improving heart health, moderate physical activity reduces stress and boosts energy levels. It can also help you manage your weight, improve your circulation and blood pressure, and raise HDL (aka "good") cholesterol levels.
