Keep Being Active


Keep physically active

Find ways to exercise and keep moving in whatever way you can:

  • Exercise is good for your muscles, bones, organs, blood pressure, blood sugar, weight, mood and thinking.
  • Research suggests that 30 minutes of moderate physical activity, three times a week, can strengthen your mind!
  • Before starting an exercise program, it’s best to speak with your doctor or therapist first to make sure the program is right for you.
