What is an 8-letter word that can have an amazingly positive impact on your heart health? EXERCISE!

Here are 5 big benefits:

Optimize Heart Health – Even if you already have heart issues, appropriate cardiovascular exercise can help regulate blood pressure, improve circulation, and manage diabetes.

Keep Diabetes at Bay – Consistent aerobic exercise positively impacts blood sugar levels and helps manage Type 2 Diabetes.

Keep Your Strength Up – Performing weight bearing exercise like walking and resistance training with hand weights or bands helps to make you stronger and increases the size of your muscles. It also helps you lose unhealthy fat.

Improve Your Mood – When you exercise your body produces “feel good” hormones called endorphins which helps boost your mood.
Independence – Regular exercise makes you stronger. Being stronger allows you to be more independent and do more things for yourself!
