MyPlate, MyWins Tips: An Active Lifestyle
Being more physically active is one of the best things you can do for your health, and it doesn’t have to be hard or involve the gym.
Get active with your friends instead of going out to eat. Go for a hike, walk around the mall, or play an exercise-themed video game.
Move more at work
Fit more activity into the workday. Stand during phone calls, use a printer farther from your desk, and get up to stretch each hour.
Do something new
Develop a new skill to kick-start your motivation. Sign up for a class to learn how to salsa dance, surf, do tai chi, or play a sport.
Keep cool in the pool
Don’t like to sweat? Hit the local community pool for a swim, water polo, or water aerobics class to stay cool while exercising.
