(NC)—Canadians are living longer on average.But research shows there's a 10-year gap between how long we live, and how long we live in health. This gap is largely due to heart disease, stroke and other chronic conditions. We know that nine in 10 Canadians have at least one risk factor for heart disease and stroke, but did you know that nearly four in 10 have three or more risk factors? To reduce that 10- year gap, the Heart and Stroke Foundation recommends being physically active, eating well, being smokefree, reducing stress and avoiding excessive drinking. Get moving to Make Health Last. Physical activity can be a lifesaver – literally. Inactivity can shave over two years off a person's expected lifespanand results in nearly four quality years of life lost.

New Stamp commemorates Queen Elizabeth II: 60th Anniversary of Her Majesty’s Coronation Princess Elizabeth became Queen on F ebruary 6, 1952, after the death of her father, King George VI, yet the Coronation didn’t occur until 16 months later. Queen Elizabeth II was crowned on June 2, 1953, at Westminster Abbey, the setting for coronations for more than 900 years. The Queen, along with The Duke of Edinburgh, rode to the Abbey in the gold S tate C oach pulled by eight grey geldings.

Not a problem: any activity can have a positive impact, including gardening, dancing and more. • MIX IT UP: Mix and match your activities, varying your level of intensity. Do an hour of yard work one day, bike with the kids the next and head to a yoga class the day after that. • HANG 10: Short on time? Exercise in bouts of 10 minutes. F or example, a quick stroll burns 47 calories. • CREATE YOUR CUBICLE GYM: Find a space at work for yoga poses, chair squats, running in place and stretches. • GET INTO CHILD' S PLAY: Have fun and rediscover your youth. Throw a Frisbee, go for a swim or paddle a canoe. • WALK THE SIDELINES: Don't just watch your kids on the field. Get up and walk around. • STEP IT UP: Get off the bus or subway a stop early, or park a few blocks from the office, and walk the rest. • DO THE HOME STRETCH: Do some stretches when you get home tonight.
