Let’s Get Started

Start small. Any movement is better than none, and more is better! Start out with just five minutes of movement and build from there or split it up throughout the day.

Step outside — and keep stepping. It’s a great way to get moving and take in some sunlight, which can improve mood, boost immunity and help you get some vitamin D.

Put a leash on it. If you have a pet, get moving together! Exercise is a win-win for both of you.

Commit to being fit.  Schedule time throughout the day to move. Set a reminder on your calendar, phone or journal.
