Get More Exercise into Your Daily Routine
Exercise doesn’t have to be a workout in a fitness center. Plenty of daily activities can be made more challenging, and therefore more heart-healthy.
If you have hypertension or a heart condition or a physical challenge such as knee arthritis, be sure to talk about safe exercise options with your doctor. There may be certain precautions you should take or signs of trouble you should be aware of before you start. Symptoms such as chest pain or shortness of breath while exercising are red flags and should be discussed with your doctor.
