The New Year is always a great time to recommit to being more active and getting in some daily exercise. The recommended amount of physical activity for adults is 150 minutes a week. That may sound like a lot of time, but it doesn’t have to be done all at once. You can break it up into 30 or 10 minute increments throughout the day or week. Everyday activities like gardening, housecleaning, shoveling snow and walking up the stairs can get the heart beating and strengthen muscles. The important thing to remember is to start slowly, choose activities that you enjoy and recognize your success along the way. No matter what you choose to do, doing something is better than doing nothing. Even small amount of physical activity can have positive results. If you are looking for some small ways to incorporate physical activity we have some suggestions.
