Tips to a Safe and Successful Physical Activity Program
Whether your goal is to control your weight or just to feel healthier, becoming physically active is a step in the right direction. Take advantage of the health benefits that regular exercise can offer and make physical activity a part of your lifestyle. But do it safely.
This Month's Health Tip:
Wear your seat belt.
Statistics show that seat belts add to longevity and help alleviate potential injuries in car crashes:
- In a crash, safety belts keep people in their seats, avoiding more serious injury or even death.
- Air bags, combined with safety belts, offer maximum protection. Air bags protect you only in head-on crashes.
- In vehicles with a passenger-side air bag, put your baby in the back seat. An air bag could injure a rear-facing infant in the front seat.
- Pregnant women should always wear safety belts, being sure to position the lap belt low across the hips.
