pt badge

As part of National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, here are top 7 ways to lead a healthy lifestyle without taking too much time.

  1. Go out for a short walk before breakfast, after lunch, or after dinner or all three. Start with 5-10 minutes and increase to 30 minutes.

  2. Walk or bike instead of driving.

  3. Take the stairs instead of the elevator.

  4. Pick a sport to enjoy. I love golf!

  5. Lift weights while watching television.

  6. Heavy gardening- clean your yard and get exercise at the same time.

  7. Yoga- exercise your mind, body, and soul.
