    Remember, a little physical activity everyday, throughout the day, can go far. Park a little farther away and walk or take the stairs instead of the elevator. Check your posture while standing at the copier, in line at the bank or while waiting at the post office. Get massage therapy or chiropractic work when possible. Set a goal to safely raise the heart rate – i.e., walking, swimming, aerobics (2-3 times a week). Stretch for flexibility and strength/tone/shape muscles (3 times a week).
