As we move forward, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle which can lead to a better immune system. The American Heart Association recommends at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity, such as brisk walking or water aerobics, or 75 minutes of vigorous activity, such as running or swimming laps. Additionally, strength training, stretching, and balance are all important parts of overall fitness. BCPL not only has resources to improve your mental fitness, but can assist with your physical fitness routine as well. With all the resources at BCPL, you'll be sure to find something that fits your active lifestyle.
