Prenzlau

The majority of workers in Brandenburg (53 percent) live with at least one risk factor for cardiovascular disease – and many do not know it. Because in addition to well-known risks such as those caused by smoking, high blood pressure or obesity, there are also lesser-known psychological factors: According to the DAK health report, depression, anxiety disorders or negative work stress can affect the heart. For prevention and countermeasures, experts recommend physical activity. That is why DAK-Gesundheit in Uckermark currently offers online information about heart-healthy exercise.

Free advice

The free lectures explain the positive effects of physical activity and highlight the biological effects in the body. The interactive online workshop also includes specific recommendations for movement.

Lots of exercise options
