Exercise and you……

exerciseThe American Heart Association has indicated that everyone should be getting 150 minutes of exercise per week to maintain a healthy heart, with many other benefits. 150 minutes can be broken down to 30 minutes a day for 5 out of 7 days in the week. Depending on the individual, this can be anything from walking around the block, to lifting weights, to running marathons. It is important to remember, when just beginning to exercise, to never push your limits. Find out what works for you and gradually work your way up. This will prevent injury and further help you maintain a regime of exercise goals.

Reduce your fall risk

Falls are the leading cause of both injuries and death from injuries in the older adult population. However, there are many ways to limit these falls and injuries. Watch for wet, slippery, or icy patches on sidewalks and in parking lots. Ensure your home has adequate lighting. Have your vision checked yearly and always wear your glasses or contacts. Exercise regularly or try programs like Tai Chi to try and improve your strength, balance, and coordination. Finally, minimize cords, rugs, and clutter that might cause you to trip. Don’t let falls get you down; take the steps to decrease your chance of falling!

How much sugar is in your diet?

According to the CDC, 36.5% of Americans are obese, making us one of the most overweight countries in the world. Added sugar is directly related to weight gain, and knowing how much is in your food can limit its effects on you. Next time you’re in the grocery store, check your nutrition labels. The average bottle of soda contains 40mg of sugar per serving. Added sugar is also found in energy drinks, fruit juices, processed foods, and many more.

Food for thought… did you know that 40mg is 10 teaspoons!? For the parents out there, would you serve your child 10 teaspoons of sugar at home?
