Wellness coach tip: Get active: start small

Are you too tired at the end of the day for your workout? The good news is you don’t have to do it all at once; you can break activity up into smaller chunks of time during the day. Find out what works best for you and develop a routine to stay on track. Aim for 150 minutes of activity each week.  Start small and build momentum by doing physical activity at a moderate or vigorous effort for at least 10 minutes at a time.

Try these strategies:

  • Take the stairs
  • Skip the shuttle
  • Take a walk

Join Health Plus for Move It Mondays for a group walk Mondays 11:30 am – noon. Meet at Medical Center North Drop Off for a group walk. All levels of fitness are welcome and participants are encouraged to walk at their own pace.
