Getting older doesn’t have to be difficult. While older individuals have a higher risk of heart disease, that doesn’t mean there aren’t steps they can take to reduce their risk and keep their heart healthy for as long as possible.

One of the easiest ways to reduce your risk of developing heart disease is engaging in regular physical activity. That doesn’t mean you have to run a marathon. You can get all the physical activity you need by swimming, bike riding, or even a good brisk walk. According to the American Heart Association, 150 minutes of physical activity a week can really help to reduce your risk of heart disease.
