Tips for increasing physical activity

Choose activities that you enjoy and can do regularly. Fitting activities into a daily routine can be easy- such as taking a brisk 10 minute walk to and from the parking lot, bus stop, or taking the stairs. Or get off the bus one stop early and walk or skate the rest of the way, but only with your parent or guardian. Make sure to do at least 10 minutes of activity at a time if you aren't able to get 30 minutes if you're an adult or 60 minutes if you're a child. If you take shorter bursts than 10 minutes of activity it will not have the same health benefits. Be sure to do at least 10 minutes at a time throughout the day.
