Some tips to help you stay active

Being physically active is not only about going to the gym or being part of a sports team, it includes many activities such as swimming, running, jogging, walking, and dancing, anything that involves moving!
  • Get outside as much as possible. Take a walk, jog, or ride a bike outside, just remember to wear a mask and/or maintain a safe distance from others. The fresh air and sunshine will provide a further boost to your overall health.
  • Keep your workouts interesting. Listen to a podcast or to your favorite playlists while working out at home. You can even add activity video games or “exergames” that simulate dancing, skateboarding, soccer, bowling, or tennis as alternatives if you are unable to participate in the real thing.
  • Build more movement into your day. Move around while you are on a call, stand for an online meeting, do squats or lunges while you are waiting for a meeting to start, or jumping jacks in front of the TV during the credits or commercial breaks.
  • Join the kids. Play catch or tag, go for a bike ride, shoot baskets, or pass the soccer ball with your kids. Taking the focus away from online classes, work or chores and playing together can even help build stronger bonds with your family.
