Short Workouts Can Be Good for Your Heart

How much is enough and how can you make it count?

Exercise is important for heart health. However, do you know how much exercise is enough? It’s recommended that all adults get at least 2.5 hours of aerobic activity each week.

If you haven’t exercised much before, you may not know where to start. It’s a good idea to check with your doctor before starting a program or increasing your activity level.

Start with 10–15 minutes at a Time

Even short bursts of activity can help your heart. Physical activity can actually lower your blood pressure by as much as some medications. It can also increase your levels of good cholesterol. To start, aim for a minimum of 10 minutes of exercise at a time.

Make Short Workouts Count

Regular aerobic exercise strengthens your heart. Here are some examples:

  • Biking
  • Walking
  • Dancing
  • Water Aerobics

You can also get physical activity from your everyday routine. This includes gardening, house cleaning or washing your car. Be creative and focus on moving more.

I had my first visit here for a cleaning along with my two little boys, and it was a great experience. Very clean and professional. Barsha was great with the kids even though it was the little one’s first time. Looking forward to our next check-up! (Well maybe not “looking forward” to going to the dentist, but not dreading it at least…)

Great experience! First time at Oralux Dental and they took very good care of me. Basha was very gentle and very informative of dental health. I especially liked communicating through sms as they were very responsive. Thanks again
