The Canadian Physical Activity Guideline recommends 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week, in bouts of 10 minutes or more for adults.

That’s just over 21 minutes a day! To think most of us spend at least that amount of time driving to work or school, watching tv, playing video games, surfing the internet, etc.

Making positive changes to your lifestyle does not have to be so drastic. A few minutes a day can make a huge difference in your overall health.

Examples of moderate intensity activities may include:
– walking
– biking
– swimming
– mowing the lawn
– walking the dog
– dancing
– exercise machines such as the treadmill, elliptical or stationary bike
