Health Tip: Exercise Safely

(HealthDay News) -- Enthusiasm to exercise is great motivation, but you should also take care not to overdo it.

The Harvard School of Public Health suggests:

  • Opting for "safer" forms of exercise, including walking, gardening, swimming and dancing.
  • Increasing activity slowly, over time.
  • Protecting yourself with appropriate equipment, and preparing for current weather.
  • Consulting your doctor if you are pregnant or have a chronic illness.
