It is important to start slowly with any physical activity especially if you are the non-active individual . In Brody (2008), the article suggests that exercise should be gradually incorporated into the daily life because it improves blood flow to the brain, therefore, eliminating the risk of a stroke. The point is to get the heart pumping oxygen!
All movement counts! Any activity that increases your heart rate will do. Activities do not have to be boring or hard. Every woman can benefit from moving activities. The goal is to find an activity you enjoy and get up and move!
