Exercise and Diabetes

So you find it difficult to exercise? Do you feel that you just don’t have enough time in the day to go to the gym?

Do you feel too tired at the end of your work day?

Exercise has so many health benefits, but a lot of times getting started can be difficult. The good news is that to reap the benefits of physical activity, you just have to move more during the day. Gyms and expensive exercise equipment are not necessary at all!

For helpful tips on how to work exercise into your routine, read the DRI's brochure "Get Moving" in English or "Moviendose Para la Salud" in Spanish.
