Heart-Healthy Choices

From the Fitness & Wellness After Hysterectomy Articles List

I can't seem to find the motivation to exercise.  Any advice?I know I should be exercising, but I can't seem to find the motivation. Any advice? Encouragement?


Do you need to be told that inactivity is a major risk factor for heart disease in women to get you off the couch to make a plan? Swimming, cycling, jogging, dancing, skiing, skating and walking are great choices for heart-healthy activities.

Perhaps you need a structured exercise class at the local club to be motivated. Perhaps you are easily motivated by the ease of a brisk walk thirty minutes a day. No matter which you choose, all physical activity adds up to a healthier heart with the added benefits of healthy bones and muscles.

All healthy adults ages 18–65 should be getting at least thirty minutes of physical activity 5–7 days per week. This includes you if you are more than six weeks post-op hysterectomy and have been cleared by your doctor.

Since we are all different sizes and ages and have different health concerns, there is no "one size fits all" exercise plan. It may take some time and exploration to find a plan that works for you, but it will be worth it!

Once you have found a routine that works for you, stick with it. You will soon be reaping the benefits of a healthy heart.
