Medications to control blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol are available and any medical specialist will be willing to put you on one to treat any of these conditions. Do you know that two-and-a –half hours of moderate physical activity a week could get you off some medications? Activities are limitless. Most common and fun-filled includes walking, biking, swimming, and dancing. These activities will result in losing your unhealthy weight and increase your health.

Try incorporating exercises into your routine for added benefit. You can add muscle-strengthening exercises at least twice a week to work your stomach, back, hips, legs, arms, shoulder and legs. Simple activities like standing while reading and getting down on the floor while watching TV will go a long way. When you go to the store, park your vehicle as far away as possible and walk to the store. Climb few steps every day at work or at home. Your neighborhood gym is a good place to get your body in shape as well as to meet other like-minded people.

If you have a medical condition, contact your health care specialist before starting a physical activity routine.
