Kids Exercise Tips
Hey Parents! Don't let your child's favorite TV characters have all the fun. Get together and have your own adventures. Head outside with your family and explore! If it's cold and rainy outside, throw a dance party to your favorite song, or come up with fun ways to stretch, move and play.
Try to engage your child in at least one hour of active play every day. It helps them grow stronger, feel better and stay more focused. So what does your child like to do? Chances are you'll enjoy those things too. Want some fun ideas to get you started? We've got activities for rainy days, sunny outings and even quick homework breaks.

Adult Exercise Tips
Getting active doesn't have to be complicated. Incorporate a few extra movements and stretches with your daily tasks and before you know it you'll be moving and grooving. The Center for Disease Control recommends adults get 30 minutes of activity a day, five times a week.
No problem. Take it 10 minutes at a time. Take a brisk walk during your lunch or after dinner. It will help your digestion and shake off post-meal drowsiness. Start off small and then work your way to more intense exercises. Get your spouse or a good friend to join in. Or use your activity time as a way to unwind.
No matter how you choose to get moving, the benefits are well worth it. According to the Mayo Clinic, regular physical activity can improve mood, help prevent chronic diseases, manage weight, boost energy level and help you sleep better.
