Healthy Living in New Jersey

The team at Rush ACLS understands that the best way to fight heart attacks and cardiac arrests is to prevent them from ever happening. A great place to begin is to be active and to maintain a proper diet. Below, you can find some helpful ways to stay active and healthy in the state of New Jersey.

Active Living

Approximately 3.8% of the population of New Jersey suffers from heart attacks. While not all heart attacks can be stopped, living a physically active lifestyle will certainly help you prevent them. Experts recommend 20-30 minutes of daily physical activity. Here are some ways that the residents of New Jersey can maintain a physically active life.

Change Your Daily Routine

Often the best way to begin a more active life is to change some of the small things that you do every day.

  • Ride your bicycle to work instead of driving the car.
  • Take the stairs instead of the escalator or elevator whenever possible.
  • Take 5 minute breaks every hour at work to walk around.
  • Do push-ups during the commercials of your favorite TV shows.
  • Extend your dog walk by 50%.
