How to get active

Here are 10 tips for becoming physically active

  1. Get started with some gentle stretching.
  2. Explore what types of community activities are available.
  3. Rely on the support of others – ask a friend to participate with you so you can encourage each other.
  4. Don’t be overly ambitious, set realistic goals.
  5. Each day, pick a time that’s convenient for you and commit to participating in some type of physical activity.
  6. Mark your activity times on a calendar.
  7. Try shorter, more frequent sessions rather than the occasional prolonged session.
  8. Make use of everyday movement opportunities such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator.
  9. Prepare yourself for a few lapses but don’t give up.
  10. You cannot just eat your way to good health – exercise must go hand-in-hand with good nutrition.
