February is Heart Health Month. Even modest exercise is good for your heart. How much is enough? Aim for at least 2½ hours of physical activity each week—that’s just 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. In addition, do muscle strengthening exercises 2 days a week. Can’t carve out a lot of time in your day? Don’t chuck your goal, chunk it! Try 10 or 15 minutes a few times a day. Watch this fun video from the NIH to learn more about what you can do to strengthen your heart.

The museum is proud to be part of the Massachusetts office of Travel and Tourism Visit MA and My Local MA campaigns. There is so much to see and do in Massachusetts, and we encourage everyone to get out and enjoy our great state! Click here to learn more!
