      60 minutes of physical activity, 3 days per week

    • B.

      30 minutes of physical activity; most, if not all, days of the week

    • C.

      45 minutes of physical activity, most, if not all, days of the week

    • D.

      60 minutes of physical activity, every day of the week

    Correct Answer
    B. 30 minutes of physical activity; most, if not all, days of the week
    Explanation
    The Surgeon General recommends 30 minutes of physical activity most, if not all, days of the week. This recommendation is based on the understanding that regular physical activity is essential for maintaining good health and reducing the risk of chronic diseases. Engaging in physical activity for at least 30 minutes on most days of the week helps to improve cardiovascular health, strengthen muscles, and maintain a healthy weight. It is important to note that the recommendation allows for flexibility in terms of the number of days, as long as the total weekly activity duration is met.

    Choose the answer below that would NOT improve your activities of daily living.

    • A.

      Taking the elevator

    • B.

      Parking further away in the parking lot

    • C.

      Taking the stairs

    • D.

      Getting 8 hours of sleep per night

    Correct Answer
    A. Taking the elevator
    Explanation
    Taking the elevator would not improve your activities of daily living because it involves less physical activity compared to taking the stairs or parking further away in the parking lot. Engaging in physical activity, such as climbing stairs or walking further, can help improve cardiovascular health, increase strength and endurance, and contribute to maintaining a healthy weight. Additionally, getting 8 hours of sleep per night is important for overall well-being and can positively impact daily activities by providing energy and promoting cognitive function.

    The average resting heart rate for adults is:

    • A.

      50-60 beats per minute

    • B.

      60-70 beats per minute

    • C.

      70-80 beats per minute

    • D.

      80+ beats per minute

    Correct Answer
    C. 70-80 beats per minute
    Explanation
    The average resting heart rate for adults is typically between 70-80 beats per minute. This range is considered normal and healthy for most adults. A resting heart rate below 60 beats per minute is known as bradycardia, which may be a sign of a well-conditioned heart or a medical condition. On the other hand, a resting heart rate above 100 beats per minute is known as tachycardia, which can be a sign of underlying health issues or physical exertion. Therefore, the range of 70-80 beats per minute is considered the average resting heart rate for adults.

This is based on the general guideline of drinking 8 glasses of water per day, which is equivalent to about 64 ounces or 2 liters of water.

    • A.

      Fruits & Veggies

    • B.

      Lean Protein

    • C.

      Poly-Unsaturated Fat

    • D.

      Saturated Fat

    Correct Answer
    D. Saturated Fat
    Explanation
    Saturated fat is not a recommended part of your daily diet because it can increase the levels of bad cholesterol in your blood, which can lead to heart disease and other health problems. It is found in high amounts in animal products like red meat, butter, and full-fat dairy products. It is important to limit the intake of saturated fat and instead focus on consuming fruits and vegetables, lean protein, and poly-unsaturated fats, which are healthier options for maintaining a balanced diet.

Regular practice of yoga can increase the range of motion in joints, enhance muscle flexibility, and improve overall body alignment, thus reducing the risk of injuries.

    When should you apply sunscreen?

    • A.

      Half hour before going outside

    • B.

      Just before going outside

    • C.

      Just after going outside

    • D.

      As soon as your skin is warm to the touch

    Correct Answer
    A. Half hour before going outside
    Explanation
    Applying sunscreen half an hour before going outside is the correct answer because it allows the sunscreen to fully absorb into the skin and provide maximum protection. This gives the sunscreen enough time to form a protective barrier on the skin, preventing harmful UV rays from damaging the skin. Applying sunscreen just before going outside may not provide enough time for the sunscreen to fully absorb, while applying it after going outside or when the skin is warm to the touch may already expose the skin to the sun's rays without protection.

    Of the following, which does NOT effect your resting heart rate?

    • A.

      Activity/fitness level

    • B.

      Nutrition

    • C.

      Body size

    • D.

      Air temperature

    Correct Answer
    B. Nutrition
    Explanation
    Nutrition does not directly affect resting heart rate. Resting heart rate is primarily influenced by factors such as age, genetics, and overall cardiovascular health. While nutrition plays a crucial role in maintaining overall health and cardiovascular function, it does not have a direct impact on resting heart rate. However, poor nutrition or certain dietary habits can indirectly affect heart health, leading to conditions that may eventually impact resting heart rate.
