Risk Factors – Exercise

Number two is regular exercise. And the American Heart and Stroke Association recommends 30 minutes a day, four to five times a week of moderate intensity exercise. It doesn't have to be Gene Simmons sweat pouring down headband on. This is just any type of moderate walking where he just maintained that exercise for 30 minutes straight. And from my perspective, the most important part of an exercise routine is that it's something you're going to stick with. If it's something that's great exercise but hate it, you're never going to do it. It's not worth it. But, so you've got to find the things that you like. If it's dancing, great. You know, if it's you know, running with the dogs, great. Whatever it is, find that for you.
