April 2018: Get Active

“Sitting disease” has become a worldwide epidemic. Currently, less than half of U.S. adults get the recommended amount of physical activity, and globally, one in every four adults is considered not active enough. Not only can inactivity inhibit your metabolism, it can increase your risk of obesity, anxiety/depression, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, metabolic syndrome, and early death. The good news is there is a simple solution to this widespread problem: Get Active!

Any amount of physical activity is better than none, and you can gain health benefits from as little as 10 minutes of moderate physical activity each day. In this month’s wellness video, Caterpillar Medical Director Dr. Christopher Dea discusses physical activity guidelines, easy ways to start moving more, and the many health benefits to gain when you Get Active!
