Keeping Active

Physical activity can help prevent heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis (thinning bones), and mental health problems such as depression. Physical activity helps you feel better overall.

What to Do

All kinds of physical activity will help you stay healthy, whether it is moderate or vigorous. It’s a good idea to aim for at least moderate activity— such as brisk walking, raking leaves, house cleaning, or playing with children—for 20 to 30 minutes most days of the week. Generally, the more active you are, the healthier you will become.

How to Get Started and Keep at It

If you have not been active, start slowly. Choose something that fits into your daily life. Choose an activity you like, or try a new one. Activities such as dancing, swimming, or biking can be fun.

Ask a friend to exercise with you, or join a group.

Make time in your day for physical activity.

If the weather is bad, try an exercise show on TV, watch an exercise tape, walk in the mall, or work around the house.
