High Cholesterol and FH

Why You Should Be Tested for HIGH CHOLESTEROL and FH Physical Activity Just as important as eating a healthy diet is getting enough physical activity each week. In general, you want to aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity most days of the week. It doesn’t have to come all at once. It’s just as effective to fit in physical activity throughout the day, as you can. Consider: • Parking farther away from your usual destinations and walk the extra distance • Taking the stairs instead of the elevator • Walking short distances instead of driving • Taking the dog for a longer walk a couple of times per day, and bringing your family or friends along, too • Dancing around the house to your favorite music My Activity Log Use this chart to keep track of the minutes of activity you do each day.
