Get your move on: 3 tips to get you started

Moving around and staying active is an important part of being healthy. Research has shown that a sedentary lifestyle can increase your risk of developing heart disease and Type 2 diabetes.

Kristamarie Collman, M.D., a family medicine physician at Piedmont, shares three tips to help you get your move on!

1. Find something you love to do. And make sure it’s something you are willing to do every day for at least 5-10 minutes.

2. Try to sit less. Look for different ways to move throughout the day. If you are watching TV, get up and walk in place. Or when you are at work during your lunch break, maybe you can walk for 5-10 minutes.

3. Try to do one thing at least every day, no matter how small. Just keep your body moving.
