Increase Physical Activity
Regular and consistent physical activity that can be maintained on a daily basis throughout life--walking, gardening, push ups, and lunges--is an essential piece of the optimal health equation.
Physical activity is any movement of the body that uses energy.
Aerobic physical activity gets your heart pumping. For health benefits, aerobic activity should be moderate or vigorous intensity.
How much physical activity do you need?
The National Activity Guidelines recommend 150 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic activity each week. That may seem like a long time, but if you break it up you will reach your goal in no time! Tip: Use the Talk Test:
