At Mercy Medical Group, our care teams are dedicated to healthy living.
Physical activity is such an important part of personal wellbeing. It affects your sleep, mood, weight, blood pressure and blood sugar. When you break a sweat doing anything like walking, jogging, biking, or playing your favorite sport, you're elevating your heart rate. Even if you can't get in the recommended 60 minutes of daily exercise, just going for a brisk 10-minute walk around the block can make a huge difference. Make it a part of your family activity.
You need about eight hours to give your body the rest it needs to serve you the next day. If you aren’t getting enough, here are some tips.
Our Choose Health program aims to build healthy habits for a lifetime. For more information, please talk to your Mercy Medical Group physician.
