Article SummaryX

Exercise is an important part of staying healthy, but it can be challenging to figure out how to get more active. If you’re new to physical activity, start slow by going for 10 to 15 minute walks and gradually increase to brisk walking or jogging for 30 minutes daily. Incorporate strengthening exercises 2 or 3 days per week, and consider trying yoga or Pilates for flexibility. Listen to your body’s limits and consult your doctor if you have any medical concerns. Eventually, aim for 30 minutes of aerobic exercise daily, such as brisk walks, jogging, cycling, or swimming. Vary your activities to keep things interesting and prevent boredom. Avoid targeting the same muscle group on consecutive days. Cool down after workouts by walking for 5 to 10 minutes and stretching the muscles you worked. Walking, jogging, jumping rope, doing jumping jacks, and biking are all great ways to stay active. Start with shorter durations and gradually increase as you become more comfortable.
