How active do I need to be?
Nowadays people should be active for at least 30 minutes a day. You don’t need to be active for 30 minutes at the same time—you can do it in 10-minute blocks. Add the blocks up, until you reach between 30 to 60 minutes.
The more effort your activity takes, the less time you have to do it for. For example, running behind your dog team takes a lot of effort, and requires less time. Taking your dog for a walk takes less effort, and requires more time. If you do activities that take more effort, you can do them for 30 minutes a day for 4 days every week. Another way of working out your activity is to count up points on the Active Living Guide Slide.
You can be active anywhere and at any time, in different places and at different times:
