“Moving” and “Physical activity” are not only your typical running a marathon and lifting weights. Physical activity is the body movements that work your muscles and require more energy than resting. That includes walking, gardening, dancing, and swimming. Make sure that you exercise 150 minutes or 2.5 hours per week. But you don’t have to exercise 2.5 hours all at once. You can do it in 3-minute or 5-minute increments. If you are starting an exercise program, just start small (that can mean getting out of your chair and standing up!) and gradually work your way into moving your body more. Remember that life is a marathon, not a sprint and that applies to our health as well.
