Home Exercise Can Strengthen the Heart, Lift the Spirit
The benefits of more physical activity extend well beyond improved cardiovascular conditioning and stronger muscles.
The benefits of exercise are usually measured in terms of stronger muscles and improved cardiovascular fitness. But recent research suggests that even simple at-home exercises can do wonders for your mental and emotional outlook, too.

This is especially important, as hopelessness is associated with worsening heart disease and death. The study was presented at the American Heart Associationís Scientific Sessions.
