Cardiovascular Health, Nutrition and Physical Activity
National Physical Fitness and Sports Month
The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommend that adults:
Make physical activity a regular part of the day. Choose activities that you enjoy, can do regularly, and make sure to do at least 10 minutes of activity at a time. Start with small steps, as even doing small amounts of exercise each day is beneficial to your health. Always check with your doctor first before starting any physical activity program.
Consider walking or riding your bike to work, school or store instead of driving.
