3. Walk a Little Every Day
Reams of studies show that regular exercise cuts your risk of heart disease and stroke. Aim for 30 to 60 minutes of physical activity per day. But your body benefits just as much by doing it in 10-minute installments, so small changes like parking two blocks from the office will make a huge difference. Keep this in mind if a regular exercise program seems too daunting. For instance, 10 minutes of taking the stairs instead of the elevator, a brisk 10-minute walk in the morning and another in the evening adds up to your daily minimum.
