Exercise and Fitness

There is no doubt that physical activity is good for a healthy mind and body.  Regular exercise helps to control weight, reduce the risk of disease, and can lead to a longer life.

Three types of physical activity are:

  • Aerobic exercise - swimming, bicycling, brisk walking and jogging
  • Muscle-strengthening exercises - weight lifting, push-ups
  • Weight bearing exercises - climbing stairs, running and jumping rope

How to get started

  • Begin slowly - don't try to do too much too quickly
  • Ask a friend to join you - this helps to keep each other motivated
  • Write down your goals - keep a record of daily exercise

Any amount of exercise is better than none.  Exercise helps to clear your mind and relieve your stress.
