Being physically active can reduce your risk
of chronic disease and contribute to overall wellbeing. Adults need at least 150 minutes of moderate-to-intense
physical activity every week, and kids aged 5-17 need at least 60 minutes of
physical activity every day. If you’re not exercising regularly, you’re
at an increased risk of heart disease and other chronic diseses. Take a step in the right direction by adding
physical activity to your daily lifestyle. Start slowly, and build up. It can include everyday things like walking
the dog, playing tag, building a snowman, tobogganing, and even household chores. Visit Canada.ca for more tips. Let’s get active Canada, for your heart!
