Wellness starts 'Do' campaign

Wellness Center starts 'Do' campaign

The St. Thomas Wellness Center is joining the "Do" physical activity campaign developed by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota and the American Heart Association. "Do" suggestions will be published in Bulletin Today once a month.

Do. Dance to your favorite songs.

Physical inactivity and diet combined are the second leading cause of preventable death in the United States. Approximately 60 percent of adult Minnesotans are overweight, 17 percent are obese.

Achieving the recommended amount of physical activity is as simple as being moderately active. Do is based on a simple idea: By grooving your body for just 10 minutes, three times a day, you can improve your overall health and reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes and other illnesses.
