SHINING A LIGHT ON HEALTHY HABITS - GET ACTIVE

Did you know you benefit from even small amounts of moderate activity throughout the day? Regular physical activity is easier to fit in than you realize and can lower your lifetime risk for cancer.

Adults: Get 150 to 300 minutes of moderate intensity or 75 to 150 minutes of vigorous intensity activity each week.

Moderate activity is anything that makes you breath as hard as you do during a brisk walk. During moderate activities, you'll notice a slight increase in heart rate and breathing, but you may not break a sweat.
Vigorous activities are performed at a higher intensity and generally use large muscle groups. They cause a noticeable increase in heart rate, faster breathing, and sweating.

Take a walk outside if it’s a nice day or walk inside around the house if it isn’t. Walk fast enough to speed up your heart rate and break a sweat.
