MOV­ING MORE

Good Health Choices - - Be Informed -

Not reg­u­larly mov­ing your body can cre­ate in­flam­ma­tion, but as lit­tle as 20 min­utes daily of moder­ate ex­er­cise could be all that’s needed to have an anti-in­flam­ma­tory ef­fect, ac­cord­ing to a new study. It

doesn’t have to be in­tense ac­tiv­ity ei­ther. Al­most any type of work­out that raises your heart rate will do the trick, such as brisk walk­ing, play­ing ten­nis, tai chi, swim­ming or even in­ci­den­tal ex­er­cise such as mow­ing the lawn.
