CHALLENGE TIPS

EXERCISE

First and foremost, if you want your heart to be strong, it's imperative you get the right amount of exercise.

AEROBIC ACTIVITY

Walking, jogging, bicycling or cross-country skiing

are all great ways to strengthen your heart. Aim for

at least 30 minutes of these activities, four times

per week. But be sure to talk to your doctor

before starting a new exercise program.

DIET

Don’t forget how important your diet is in maintaining a healthy heart. Fruits and vegetables are key — these are great sources of fiber. Most of us just don’t get enough fiber in our diets.
