Following holiday celebrations, thoughts often turn to the New Year and getting in shape. Regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Do something you enjoy and you’ll be more likely to keep it up all year.
Adults need at least 2 and 1/2 hours (150 minutes) a week of aerobic physical activity. This should be at a moderate level, such as a fast-paced walk for no less than 10 minutes at a time.
Try some of the following activities:
- Walking fast
- Riding a bike on level ground or with a few hills
- Playing doubles tennis
