This weekâ€™sÂ heart healthy tipÂ is so simple:Â to keep your heart healthy, pick up the phone and get yourself moving! Â I know, I know, when do you have time when you can barely make time to wash your hair or get enough sleep, but I swear itâ€™s easier than you think (for example, Iâ€™m writing this tip on my phone, from the treadmill at the gym hahaha). MULTI-TASK people! This tip is fun and a little silly, but itâ€™ll help you out in the long run.
Skip the elevator so you can return a call and take the stairs instead. Â Â Another way to get active while on the phone is to do squats while gabbing. Â Or hey, while youâ€™re walking down the hall at work and talking with a colleague, throw in a couple of lunges. Â Sure people might wonder about you, but itâ€™s for your heart! and it will help your butt too!!!
According to the American Heart Association, this type ofÂ exercise gets your blood flowing,Â andÂ having a healthier heart could save you money (over $500 a year in medical costs)! Â Best of all,Â each ofÂ these suggestions canÂ also lift that booty! So take the stairs, squat, lunge, and call your friends toÂ challengeÂ them to do the same!Â So, dear readers, IÂ challengeÂ you to grab your cell, call a friend, and get to steppinâ€™! Â Itâ€™ll keep your heart healthy, and your friends and family happy.
