Active living is a way of life that integrates physical activity into daily routines. The goal for adults is to accumulate at least 30 minutes of activity each day, 60 minutes for children. Individuals may achieve this by walking or bicycling for transportation, exercise or pleasure; playing in the park; working in the yard; taking the stairs; and using recreation facilities.

There are many reasons why active living is a good idea for you and your family. It’s fun to be active together as a family and with friends. Kids who are active keep busy out of school and learn better in school. It’s a good way to meet new people.
Being active can help protect you against heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, depression and some types of cancer. Along with healthy eating, physical activity helps you maintain a healthy weight.
