Easy Ways to Build Activity into Your Daily Life

May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, when Americans are encouraged to integrate physical fitness and activities into their daily lives and regular routines.

It is recommended that children and teens get an hour of physical activity each day and adults get at least 30 minutes— a feat that’s not always easy in today’s age of video games and online social networking.

Physical activity is increasingly important since one in every three children in the United States is obese. Obesity has also doubled among adults since the early 1970’s.

Integrating activity into your life doesn’t mean you have to go out and train for a marathon, and it doesn’t require a pricey gym membership, so no need to be intimidated!

It can be as simple as committing to taking a walk each night after dinner, or opting to bike to work instead of driving. You can also integrate fitness into your stationery activities. Try leaving a list of quick exercises (like jumping jacks) next to your remote that you can do during commercial breaks of TV shows. Every little bit counts!
