Friday – Health Tip

Been diagnosed with Diabetes?

“Walking is one of the best ways to help when you are a diabetic. Start off with a walk in the morning and increase time and pace as you get accustomed to walking. Park away from the front door at stores and make yourself take more steps. It adds up in a hurry. Take another walk at night and again increase time and pace as you begin to feel comfortable. It is all about pushing yourself a little more each week. Eating healthier is the other key factor. Finding new recipes to keep you interested in a healthier lifestyle will contribute to staying on track.” – Compliments of a Heart South Team Member
