How Do You Measure Up?

Getting annual check-ups and exams is a great way to stay aware of your physical well-being. Some things only doctors can tell you, but there are a number of numerical figures that you can determine on your own to help establish the state of your physical condition.
Discovery Health has put together a number of tools and calculators that allow you to get personalized information about everything from your BMI (Body Mass Index) to what you should target your heart rate to be during exercise in order to “maximize the health benefits of cardiovascular activity.”
Find out how many calories a specific activity burns, or how many calories you burn just laying in bed (basal metabolic rate). Be amazed at how many breaths you have taken or how many beats your heart has made in your lifetime.
Just like the Longevity Game  we brought you last week, these simple tools don’t dig deep into serious health issues and concerns, but can wake us up to minor health problems and give us a new perspective. So try it out! Discover how you measure up with Discovery Health Tools .
