February is National Heart Health Month. Most people know that exercise is important for heart health. However, not everyone knows just how much exercise is enough. Is it 15 minutes a day? 30 minutes? 1 hour?
The recommendation is that all adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week. At a minimum, aim for at least 10 minutes at a time. After that, it’s your choice. You could do 30 minutes a day, five days a week – or two 15-minute sessions a day, five days a week; or three 10-minute sessions a day for five days.
You can get a moderate-intensity aerobic workout from many activities, such as biking, brisk walking, or dancing. What's most important is that you simply get moving! Always check with your doctor first before you start a new exercise program.Learn more about heart health
