Please don’t ignore small active steps because they all count, indulging in activities like taking the stairs instead of the elevator, park farther from your destination and complete your journey on foot or walk a distance or even ride your bike to work can be a all you need to stay healthy. Please stop making excuses for being in-active! – See below for more ways to stay active:

  • Pay attention to how you feel after physical activity. You’ll be surprised by how long a short exercise can sustain your energy levels.

Bring a friend

  • Develop new friendships with physically active people. Join a group, like a dance group, biking group or even running club.

Stay motivated

  • Plan ahead. Make physical activity a regular part of your family’s daily or weekly schedule and write it on a family activity calendar. Keep track of your progress with an exercise chart.
  • Exercise with friends who are at the same skill level as you, and create opportunities for your children to be active with active friends.

Use available resources

  • Select activities that require minimal facilities or equipment, such as walking, jogging, jumping rope or stretching and strengthening movements.
  • Identify inexpensive, convenient resources available in your community, such as education, park and recreation and work site programs.

Build new skills

    Exercise in your and beyond helps prevent frailty and falls, and it’s important for your cognitive function. If you have a period of ill health, try to keep mobile, if possible. Strength and fitness can decline rapidly if you are bed bound or very inactive, which can make it hard to get back to previous levels.
