Short Bouts of Exercise Reduce Heart Disease Risk

Walking 20 min/day will reduce your risk of coronary heart disease.

Any level of exercise reduces coronary heart disease risk, but the more the better according to the latest research. Walking briskly for 150 min/week cuts your risk by 14%. That's only 20+ minutes a day! Boost that up to 300 min/week or 45 min/day and you'll reduce your risk by 20%.

PositiveTip: Take a brisk walk today, no matter how short or long...and make it a daily habit.
