Move More to Prevent Diabetes
Experts recommend at least 150 minutes per week of moderate physical activity. That’s 30 minutes, five days per week of exercise that gets your heart rate elevated. This doesn’t have to mean joining a gym or running a marathon. Moderate physical activity can be fast walking or dancing. There are many small ways to start moving more, including find an exercise buddy and spending time outside. Physical activity helps manage blood sugar (especially if your body is not responding to insulin properly). It will also help you maintain a healthy weight, sleep better, and feel healthier.
