Health Tips - Exercise

You should have 30-40 minutes of cardiovascular exercise every day. The basic formula for success is to set goals that gradually increase your physical activity. Keep track of your increased physical activity, continually re-establish short-term goals, and reward yourself for effort and progress.

Walking, cycling, aerobics and swimming can all help you look and feel great! But watch for the following pitfalls when beginning a new activity.

  • Setting unrealistic goals
  • Ignoring personal "likes" and "dislikes"
  • Starting off too vigorously
  • Criticizing oneself


  • Not in the best mood? Take to the street. When you walk, your brain releases feel-good chemicals that beat the blues.
  • Walk regularly and you will sleep more soundly at night.
  • Walk the right way! If you want to see results, you have to walk with good form.


  • Keep your chin up, shoulders relaxed, chest lifted.
  • Pump arms with a 90-degree bend in the elbows. Hands should be cupped loosely, not clenched.
  • Pull abs in.
  • Plant heel first with toes lifted, then roll along the ground, pushing off with the toes.
  • Maintain tall posture; avoid arching your back or leaning forward.
