Fitting Physical Activity Into Your Day
 
 A faster heartbeat and increased breathing are what define moderate-level activity. Experts say to do 2 1/2 hours of moderate activity a week. Moderate activity means things like brisk walking, brisk cycling, or shooting baskets. But any activities that raise your heart rate and make you breathe harder-including daily chores-can be included. 
 

Here's some good news: It doesn't have to be a certain amount each day. It's fine to do blocks of 10 minutes or more throughout your day and week. So go push the lawn mower, walk the dog, dance with your kids, use the stairs instead of the elevator, get coffee on a different floor at work. Just get moving!
