Activity Tips

1. Try to be active every day. American College of Sports Medicine recommends that adults should get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week. Exercise recommendations can be met through 30-60 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise (five days per week) or 20-60 minutes of vigorous-intensity exercise (three days per week). Start with 10 minutes each day and add more time as you build up. You don't need to do it all at once! Every 10 minutes count towards your daily total. 

2. Fit activity into your usual routine. Walk to the mailbox, store, to pick up a movie, or to pick up your kids. Every little step counts. 

3. Make an active date with a friend or your partner to go for a walk, cycle, spin, swim, dance, workout, ski, skate, paddle, climb, or to play a game of tennis or squash. 

4. Get outside and work or play in the garden, with the kids, on the soccer field, on the green, on a trail, at a park, on the water or the ice. 

5. Stretch, do yoga, light weights or calisthenics while you watch TV. You don't have to leave home to get moving!

Always consult your health care professional before making any significant changes in your dietary habits or your physical activity routines.
