Promoting Heart Health with a Physical Activity Program

Part of the Heart Disease For Dummies Cheat Sheet

To keep your heart healthy and disease-free, you have to exercise it — after all, the heart is a muscle. And if you already have a heart problem, maintaining an exercise program recommended by your medical caregiver may be a key treatment method. To help stick with your exercise program through the week-in-week-out grind, use these tips:

  • Set a time and place. Plan at least one activity like a short walk at lunch and other opportunities will fall in place.

  • Be prepared. Adopt a mind-set that emphasizes more physical activity.

  • Include family and friends.

  • Have fun. You'll stick with something you like.

  • Prioritize. Make getting physical activity as important a priority as other objectives in your life.
