Keeping the pressure down

Today the sun came out again.  Things are very waterlogged.  My plants look a bit as if they had too much to drink – sort of limp and hung over.  but now the sun has appeared again and I imagine they will be better off tomorrow.

Since the evening was beautiful, I went out for a bike ride.  I was reading some healthy type magazine that comes to our office free.  The article stated that a person should get 60 minutes of physical activity every day – not necessarily at once, it could be in 10 minute segments.  This amount of activity would help to keep blood pressures down and I imagine weight might go down as well.  Since I am just on the edge of the high range of blood pressure, I know that this is something I should do. 

I wonder if taking 10 minutes to get out of bed and go down stairs to make coffee, returning up the stairs again to bring a cup to my lazy husband(still in bed), counts as physical activity?
