TIPS FOR SMART LIVING
- Find time for a nap. Take a 10-minute escape and close your eyes for a quick power nap. Even if you don’t fall asleep, the rest will energize the rest of your day.
- Take the stairs after lunch. Skip the elevator after lunch to help get your digestion moving. A short burst of activity will increase your breathing and heart rate. Be sure to seek out your physician's advice before beginning a new fitness routine.
MAKE YOUR MOVE: 20-MINUTE WALK
Try this short routine by simply walking out your front door or hopping on a treadmill. You’ll burn calories, relieve stress, and help aid digestion. Remember, seek your physician’s advice before beginning any new exercise routine.
- Start with a five-minute warm-up. Walk at a casual pace on flat ground or a slight incline.
- Pick up your pace to moderate intensity for 10 minutes. Remember to stand tall, keeping your head up and your chest lifted. Keep your arms bent at 90 degrees and close to your body as you swing them back and forth. For a more intense workout, climb a hill or raise the incline.
- Cool down for five minutes. Slow down to a casual pace, decrease your incline, and let your heart rate slow to normal.
