Physical Activity

Choose activities that you enjoy and can do regularly. You just need to keep it interesting by trying something different on alternate days.

Every bit counts, and doing something is better than doing nothing!

At home

  • Join a walking group in the neighbourhood or at the local shopping mall
  • Push the baby in a stroller
  • Do stretches or pedal a stationary bike while watching television
  • Walk or bike to a nearby store instead of driving
  • Play with the kids – ride a bike or go to the playground

At work

  • Replace a coffee break with a brisk 10-minute walk
  • Join a nearby gym or exercise programme
  • Walk down the hall to speak with someone rather than using the telephone
  • Take the stairs instead of the elevator
