Check out this article from the American Physical Therapy Association which discusses new changes to activity guidelines from The US Department of Health and Human Services:

http://www.apta.org/PTinMotion/News/2018/11/13/HHSPAGuidelinesRevision/

To summarize the article in a paragraph: any movement is better than none.  Inactivity and prolonged sedentary periods due to the conveniences of modern life are taking a toll on our health.  People of all ages should get a minimum of 150 minutes per week of moderate intensity exercise.

So what is moderate intensity exercise? Moderate intensity exercise will noticeably elevated your heart and breathing rate but you should still be able to carry on a conversation. “You should be able to talk but not sing.” (ttps://www.verywellfit.com/what-is-moderate-intensity-exercise-3435400).  Here are some great examples of exercises that fit this category:  brisk walking, easy jogging, elliptical trainer, leisurely swimming, water aerobics, biking without steep hills, doubles tennis, gardening, and line dancing.

So let’s get moving!
