Mayor's Wellness Tip Of The Week - Importance of Exercising 
If you are trying to control your weight, exercise is a key way to burn calories. When you exercise regularly, you build stronger muscles. Muscle cells burn more calories than fat cells throughout the day, even while you are resting; this helps boost your metabolism. How much exercise you need to make a difference in your weight depends on how much you eat and what activity you are doing. A medium-sized adult would have to walk more than 30 miles to burn up 3,500 calories, the equivalent of one pound of fat. Although that may seem like a lot, you don't have to walk the 30 miles all at once. Walking a mile a day for 30 days will achieve the same result, as long as you don't eat more than usual.

It’s In Our Power Energy Tip- Use A Ceiling Fan and Save Money
Ceiling fans are efficient and use little electricity, less than 1/10th the wattage of air conditioners.
  • Cost to run is approximately $1.50 per month vs. $20 per month for air conditioners. 
  • Ceiling fans can also be used with A/C. The thermostat can be set 9° higher, for the same resulting temperature, representing a savings of 30% of costs and energy consumption. 
For more energy-saving tips, and to take the energy pledge, go to www.ourpowercherryhill.org.
