How to stay active

Summer is in full swing, are you still staying active? Regular physical activity is extremely important for maintaining your physical and mental health. Aim to get 150 minutes of moderate physical activity every week as well as muscle strengthening 2 days per week.   You can break this down into 30 minute sessions of activity 5 days a week.  Research indicates that there are health benefits from being active for just 10 minutes at a time.  Taking a walk counts toward your minutes! 

 For suggestions on how to stay active during the summer, check out the Campus Rec Fitness and Wellness YouTube channel playlist for at-home workout videos.  You’ll find tips on how to get up and moving!   You can also attend our remote yoga class and get 30 minutes of activity every Wednesday.  Here is the link
