Physical activity is a vital part of our well-being. The recommended guidelines for adults 18-64 years old is at least 150-300 minutes of moderate intensity or 75-150 minutes of vigorous intensity activity weekly, along with two or more days weekly of strength training. The more physical activity, the more benefit, but any amount of physical activity is better than none!
Here are some examples of physical activity to support your well-being:
Aerobic or endurance activities include running, swimming, biking, hiking, playing sports, dancing and brisk walking.
Strength or resistance activities include weight lifting, pushing a wheelchair/stroller, kettlebells and body weight exercises such as squats, lunges, pushups, sit-ups etc.
Flexibility activities include stretching and some forms of yoga.
Balance activities include tai chi, qi gong and some forms of yoga. If you have ideas or would like to be more involved in our initiatives, please reach out to us.
