Get Active Your Way, Every Day - For Life!
Scientists say accumulate 60 minutes of physical activity every day to stay healthy or improve your health. As you progress to moderate activities you can cut down to 30 minutes, 4 days a week. Add-up your activities in periods of at least 10 minutes each. Start slowly ... and build up.

Physical activity doesn't have to be very hard. Build physical activities into your daily routine.
* Walk whenever you can - get off the bus early, use the stairs instead of the elevator.

* Reduce inactivity for long periods, like watching TV.
* Get up from the couch and stretch and bend for a few minutes every hour.

* Play actively with your kids.
* Choose to walk, wheel or cycle for short trips.

* Start with a 10 minute walk - gradually increase the time.
* Find out about walking and cycling paths nearby and use them.
* Observe a physical activity class to see if you want to try it.
* Try one class to start, you don't have to make a long-term commitment.
* Do the activities you are doing now, more often.
