Spring Clean Your Health - Get Your Heart Pumping
During spring time people typically clean and de-clutter their homes. It's also a time of the year when allergies are at their peak. The Palo Alto Medical Foundation wants you to be healthy. Here are some ways you can spring clean your health.
- Get your heart pumping! Engage in some physical activity for at least 30 minutes a day.
- Have a play day with your kids at the park, do some fun outdoor sports or take a short walk around the neighborhood while enjoying the nice weather.
- Eat your daily servings of fruit and vegetables - they contain nutrients that are essential for your body health, and are great on-the-go snacks.
