Keeping yourself, your children and your pets healthy is a top priority
“People who take a proactive approach to their physical, mental and social wellness are typically healthier and better prepared if any health issues arise,” says Satesh Bidaisee, Associate Professor and Deputy Chair of St. George’s University Department of Public Health and Preventive Medicine at St. George’s University. “Same goes with pets, too, which is why family wellness should be a holistic effort.”
Here are the top health recommendations from Dr. Bidaisee. Learn more at www.sgu.edu.
People: People should exercise for at least 150 minutes a week (30 minutes per day, five times a week) if doing moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes a week (25 minutes per day, three days a week) if performing vigorous aerobic activity, recommends the Department of Health and Human Services. Additionally, people should strive to do strength-training exercises at least twice a week.
