When you are ready to be more active, start slowly. Here are some steps to get you going in the right direction:
Once you feel that you are ready to add more moderate to vigorous physical activity, aim to be active at least 150 minutes each week, in periods of 10 minutes or more.
If you are new to physical activity, speak to your health care provider before starting a more intense physical activity program.
SMART goals are specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic and time-framed. The secret to success is to break down your healthy eating and physical activity goals into mini goals that are easy to manage. Start with one small, clear goal that is right for you.
