"Swimming, cycling, jogging, skiing, aerobic dancing, walking or any of dozens of other activities can help your heart. They all cause you to feel warm, perspire and breathe heavily without being out of breath and without feeling any burning sensation in your muscles. Whether it is a structured exercise program or just part of your daily routine, all exercise adds up to a healthier heart."

"I just recently started to cook more in general. You'd be surprised how much money you'd save by eating home cooked meals as opposed to just doing the quick and easy fast food route. Grocery shopping is definitely an investment, and cooking is a great self improvement hobby!"
