So get more active and start feeling better today.
Moderate-intensity aerobic activity
Tight on time this week? Start with just 5 minutes. It all adds up!
Or get the same benefits in half the time. If you step it up to vigorous-intensity aerobic activity, aim for at least 75 minutes a week.
Is it moderate or vigorous? Use the talk test to find out. When you are being active, just try talking:
Whatever gets you moving! Even things you have to do anyway or things that do not feel like exercise, you can get more active. No matter who you are, where you live, on your own, or together. You can find a way that works for you. And over time, physical activity can help you live a longer, healthier life.
So take the first step. Get a little more active each day. Move your way.
