Get Moving!
Open enrollment is here, which means it’s also time to fill out the annual Health Risk Assessment form, or wellness profile. Last year, 85 percent of Hopkins’ employees who filled out the HRA reported getting less than the recommended amount of exercise. The surgeon general’s report on physical activity states that 30 minutes of moderate exercise on most days of the week is beneficial for health; you don’t need to run a marathon to get results. Even breaking up the 30 minutes into smaller periods of 10 minutes each counts. There are many ways to add moderate activity and still lose weight and get healthful benefits—walking, gardening, biking, dancing or even washing the car—so pick something you’ll enjoy.
