Heart Health Tips!


Suzan Whelan

February is Heart Health month! The Office of Employee Wellness would like to present to you a Heart Healthy tip of the day:

Tune in and tone up, rain or shine. Weather or darkness doesn't have to limit physical activity. Set the example for the rest of the family by lacing up those walking shoes while catching up on the news or watching a favorite television program. Carrying filled water bottles or canned foods works arms and shoulders, while stepping or jogging in place for at least 10 to 15 minutes. Work up to at least 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week. If needed, start with shorter sessions and add 5 minutes each week until you reach 30 minutes a day.
