Tip of the Day

From a health standpoint, aerobic exercise is about as close as you can get to a "magic potion." It can help you lose weight, ease stress, boost your immune system and reduce the risk of certain diseases. Aerobic means "living in air," and when linked with exercise, refers to any activity that increases oxygen intake and heart rate. "When you exercise aerobically, you repeatedly contract large muscle groups, such as your legs and arms, and you increase your breathing and your heart rate," says Edward R. Laskowski, M.D., a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist and co-director of the Sports Medicine Center at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn. Examples of aerobic exercises include running, walking, cycling, swimming, cross-country skiing and aerobic exercise classes. (Source: Mayo Clinic website – www.mayoclinic.com)
