Keep Him Moving


Have you heard about the recent study in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise that found that people who sit for most of the day — as most of us do — were 54% more likely to die of a heart attack?

If your spouse has a desk job, remind him of the importance of taking a few short, quick walks throughout the day to get his blood flowing.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise, such as brisk walking. It's fine to spread out your exercise by taking a 10-minute brisk walk, three times a day, five days a week to reach the 150 minute total, according to the CDC. Playing outdoor games with your kids is another great way to get him moving and relieve his 9-to-5 stress.
