Making Active Living a Daily Part of Life
It may be simpler than you think! Try to find a more active way
to do every day tasks -- take the stairs instead of the elevator,
or walk to the store and leave your car at home. Also, look for
activities you enjoy, like dancing, gardening, basketball or
walking. Don't forget to mix things up by trying flexibility,
strength and endurance activities.
