    Take a walk..........

    And I mean that in a good way. Starting out on a short walk every day will help your health in a non-taxing way. No big push too jog a mile, just take a walk, a little exercise will help lower your cholesterol levels.

    I'm almost 55 and run high, have my entire life. I took up yoga 2 years ago, non impact, gentle stretching. I also have a stair stepper that I use when the mood strikes (about once a month, LOL).

    I didn't (can't) do HRT, but then I couldn't do birth control either, so can't help out on the estrogen issue.
