4. Exercise Daily
Whether or not you’re currently exercising, you should increase the amount that you exercise and workout most days per week. Exercise has been known to improve cholesterol, even if you just workout at a moderate intensity. Physical activity raises HDL cholesterol and it’s recommended that you workout for at least 30 minutes every day. If you don’t want to workout for a full 30 minutes, add three sets of ten minutes each.
If you’re not used to working out, it’s important to find an exercise that you enjoy. Take a walk during your lunch break, ride your bike to work in the morning or play your favorite sport with friends. If you’re having trouble staying motivated, join an exercise group or find a friend to workout with. Remember, even something as simple as taking the stairs instead of the elevator is beneficial.
