Heart Disease Risk Factor Infographic: Physical Inactivity

Heart Disease Risk Factor Infographic: Physical Inactivity.

Inactive people are nearly twice as likely to develop heart disease as those who are active. The good news is that physical activity can protect your heart and you don't have to run a marathon to see benefits. Regular physical activity can also reduce your chances of developing high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

Aim for at least 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week

Three things to do (10 minutes each) = 30 minutes of physical activity

When doing aerobic activity, do it for at least 10 minutes at a time.

Take a walk around the block
Dance to three of your favorite songs
Go for a bike ride

30% of women ages 40-60 years are physically inactive
