Exercise is very important for a healthy heart. However, if you've been inactive for some time it is important to start slowly, building up your strength gradually. You may want to start with five minutes of activity four times each week, gradually building this up to a level which you can tolerate.

Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderately intense activity five of more days each week. Remember that any increase in your current activity levels will be beneficial for your health in the long-term.
