CAMPAIGN TO HELP HEARTS KICKS OFF

3 Jun 2005

Try:

· Getting up 30 minutes earlier and going for a brisk walk. An early stroll will increase your metabolism and energy levels, get your circulation going and generally lift your spirits. After this, you’ll be ready to tackle anything the day throws at you.

· Cycling - if you live close enough to work dig out the bike that has lay dormant in your shed and start pedalling. If travelling to work on two wheels is out of the question, use the evenings and weekends.

· Making the most of your lunch break. Escape the bright screens and fluorescent lights and fit some exercise in – it will make you feel more alert and ready to tackle the rest of the day, as well as freeing up your time in the evening. If you have time go swimming or take a trip to the gym.

· Embracing the great outdoors. The summer is with us, so take advantage or the longer days and soaring temperatures. Tennis, swimming, surfing, volleyball and rounders were made for the summer months.

· Putting extra effort in to daily chores – even housework counts as exercise. Scrubbing floors, vacuuming or vigorously cleaning windows can burn as many calories as a trip to the gym – and you'll be left with a gleaming house instead of pile of sweaty gym clothes.
