3 Practical Exercise Tips for
People with Diabetes

Highlights from the April

Hawthorne Diabetes Group gathering on

"Physical Activity for Better Blood Sugars"

1.) Make a list of activities you like. Exercise doesn’t have to mean going to a gym. There are many fun activities that get your heart pumping. Want to try yoga, biking, swimming, walking? The world is your oyster!

2.) Ease into it. In order to avoid injury, slowly increase your exercise intensity and time. Start with “snacking” on exercise for 10 minutes 2-3 times a day. Then continue to progress until you are getting the CDC recommendation of 150 minutes per week - sounds like a lot, but it’s just 30 minutes, 5 times a week.

3.) Make it a habit. Set a specific time each day to get your workout in. Make it a date with yourself, and don’t stand yourself up! Doing the workout at the same time each day also helps you reduce the risk of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).

*Note: it's always advisable to check with you healthcare practitioner before beginning a new exercise regime
