Health Tip: Getting Enough Hard Exercise

-- Moderate-to-vigorous exercise helps promote weight loss and could ward off health problems. But how do you know if you're exercising hard enough?

  • Yard work, such as raking leaves or mowing the lawn.
  • Shoveling a light amount of snow.
  • An active game with children.
  • A casual bike ride.
  • Skating at a quick pace.
  • Cross-country skiing.
  • Swimming laps, jumping rope or playing a competitive sport.
