Week 3 #HealthyHabitsChallenge: Create a plan for the week

This week, we challenge you to create a plan for the week.

Many doctors recommend at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week. If you exercise at least 30 minutes per day for 5 days, you can help prevent diseases as well as increase your cardiovascular health. Not only does exercise help with physical health, but  it can reduce your stress levels and improve your mood as well!   

Here are some tips to make sure you fit in 150 minutes of activity this week:

  • Make workout appointments with yourself to schedule your workouts. 
  • Add them to your calendar!
  • Pack your bags the night before so you’re ready. 

“The benefits of regular exercise are proven. It can do wonders for your overall health,” said Dr. James Turek, a family medicine physician at Tidelands Health. 

Creating a schedule for the week will help you identify the times that you can work in working out.
