take charge of your fitness routine
Back-to-school time - which means mom and dad may have a few extra minutes to themselves soon. So, why not start a fitness routine? Regular fitness helps you maintain and improve the health of your heart, reduces the risk of diseases such as diabetes and Alzheimer’s, promotes energy, quality rest and a healthy weight. Working out also helps you manage unhealthy stress and can address symptoms of mild to moderate depression.
To enjoy all the benefits that exercise provides, all you need to do is...
- Start off with 30 minutes of moderate aerobic activity at least four days a week, which could be jogging on a treadmill or riding a bike (stationary or outdoors). Now that the weather is nice, get some friends together for daily walks
- Include at least two days of strength training with resistance bands, bodyweight or free weights
- Finally, a stretching routine should be incorporated; which can be done from home with no equipment needed
