Do you get 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week? If you need to increase your activity level, take these simple steps:
- Schedule your activity. Exercise
and movement need to become as much a priority in your day as doctor
appointments, errands or work.
- Start with activities you find
easy and fun. You want to avoid both injury and burnout early on.
- Increase both the intensity and
duration of your activity gradually. Don’t overdo it.
- Set short term goals and keep track of your progress. Journal your workouts to keep yourself motivated as you improve.
