Adding Physical Activity
If you have a health condition, an old injury, or you have not been active in a while, talk with your doctor first about what level and kinds of activities are safe for you.
When you work, find ways to keep active and put extra moves into your routine.
When you are doing seated activities, stretch your body while you stretch your mind.
When you do household chores, yard work, gardening, and home repair, think about ways to move and make your chores double duty.
Walk or bike to get to where you need to go more often, and walk or pedal briskly.
When you exercise or do sports, spend more time doing whatever you like to do--or step up the pace!
When you do strength training exercises, start slowly and work up to more.
