(HealthDay News) -- Enthusiasm to exercise is great motivation, but you should also take care not to overdo it.
The Harvard School of Public Health suggests:
- Opting for "safer" forms of exercise, including walking, gardening, swimming and dancing.
- Increasing activity slowly, over time.
- Protecting yourself with appropriate equipment, and preparing for current weather.
- Consulting your doctor if you are pregnant or have a chronic illness.
