YOU CAN ACTIVATE YOURSELF

  • You don't need special skills or training to be physically active. Walking is a great way to be active.
  • Physical activity should be initiated slowly, and the intensity should be increased gradually (e.g., start with a 10-minute walk three times a week and work your way up to 30 minutes of brisk walking or other form of moderate activity five times a week).
  • Activities can be split into several short periods (e.g., 10 minutes 3 times a day) instead of one longer period (e.g., 30 minutes once a day).
  • You should select activities that you ENJOY and can fit into your daily life.
  • It may take time to incorporate more activity into your daily life. Don't get discouraged if at first you miss a day or two; just keep trying and do your best to make it a regular part of your life. You will soon realize how good it feels to be physically active and fit.
  • Ask for support from friends and family; likewise, support the people in your life who are trying to be physically active.
  • Many forms of physical activity can be social, allowing you to converse and spend time with family or friends or to develop new relationships.
  • Make fitness a priority‚ĶCOMMIT TO IT.
