Wellness tip: Walk to improve your risk profile
According to the American Heart Association, women who walk briskly for at least three hours per week or exercise vigorously for 1.5 hours per week, cut their risk of heart disease by 30%-40%. Exercise reduces the risk for men too. If it's hard finding time, try waking up a little earlier and going for a walk before your day takes over, or try walking during part of your lunch break or after dinner. For more information, call 744-WELL (9355) or click here.
