EXERCISE LIKE BRUSHING YOUR TEETH 

Brushing your teeth and exercise both need to be a daily habit to get great results!  

Morning routines generally include brushing your teeth, having breakfast and getting some physical activity--right?

If you answered no--where does physical activity fit into your daily routine? Is it when you get time? Or are you an end-of-the-day person? The time of day isn't important but getting regular physical activity is. A recent ADA survey showed that Midwesterners are getting better at achieving this goal. When surveyed in 1995, 22 percent of Midwesterners stated they had regular physical activity. In 1997 this number has jumped to 43 percent--way to go!

Regular physical activity helps improve the cardiovascular system, makes you feel good, and may help with weight loss. If you're still struggling with physical activity set a goal to start slowly--ten to fifteen minutes is a good start, then increase as the activity gets easier. Before your know it, you'll be enjoying regular physical activity and all the benefits it brings.

Swim your way through life
