Get Active


It doesn't have to be hard to fit activity into your daily life.


The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommends adults get 30 minutes of activity a day, most days of the week. Do you get that much activity daily? Does anyone you know?

It can be hard to fit activity into your schedule. Did you know you can achieve the same health benefits by moving 30 minutes one time a day or 10 minutes, 3 times per day? When it comes to moving, some activity is better than none and more is better. Any amount of physical activity will provide health benefits.

Check out the sections below for ideas on how you can fit activity into your day.
