10 Warning Signs You Might Be Headed for a Stroke

Lack of exercise

The stroke risk: A sedentary lifestyle increases your risk for stroke and a lot of the factors that contribute to it.

In fact, inactive people are 20% to 25% more likely to have a stroke than those who are moderately or highly active, according to a 2015 review of past studies published in the journal Stroke.

Reduce it: Get 30 minutes of moderate exercise, such as brisk walking or biking, at least five days a week.

If you can’t squeeze a half-hour workout into your schedule almost every day, aim for 150 minutes of exercise a week in any combination. Even bouts of activity lasting as little as 10 minutes count.
