The Moment You Move More

Americans’ sedentary lifestyles are increasing their risk for heart disease and stroke, but small steps—actual steps—lead to big gains and can help you become Healthy For Good. Whether it’s walking, running, biking, swimming, playing sports or doing yoga, the American Heart Association recommends adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity per week, or 75 minutes of vigorous activity. Kids should get at least 60 minutes of activity every day.

If you don’t want to sweat the numbers, just move more. Sneak more steps into your daily routine and find forms of exercise you enjoy.
