Ways to Strengthen Your Heart

There are dozens of ways to strengthen your heart. It's a muscle and it benefits from exercise. The best exercise for your heart? Any aerobic activity you do will benefit your heart. Aerobic activities are so good for you because they stimulate and strengthen your heart and lungs, thereby improving your body's use of oxygen.

What to do?
  • Start walking- It's free, you can do it anywhere and it's a great place to start if you do not already exercise
  • Swim
  • Ride a bike
  • Hike
  • Run
Start slow and grab a buddy. Try to get 30 minutes a day 3-4 times per week and then increase either time duration or the days (or both). You believe how good you'll begin to feel.
