Aerobic exercise is one of the best ways to improve your heart health. This can include activities like brisk walking, running, cycling, or anything that increases your heart rate. The CDC recommends 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise every week or 30 minutes a day for 5 days a week. If that seems like a lot, don’t worry. You can start with less and build up to that level over time. The links below will guide you.
Why regular exercise is good for you
While fitting regular exercise into your schedule can be hard, it does have many health benefits. It can decrease your risk for heart disease, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and improve heart health. It can also reduce stress. The benefits increase when you combine regular exercise with healthy eating habits.
