Lifestyle Medicine Monthly Challenge

Get Your Move On!

Enhance Your Health With Movement and Physical Activity

Humans are made to move. However, modern technology and lifestyle has engineered movement out of our daily lives. Most of us are sedentary throughout the day, and require structured exercise to get our daily dose of movement.

How does movement benefit you?

Humans are made to move. However, modern technology and lifestyle has engineered movement out of our daily lives. Most of us are sedentary throughout the day, and require structured exercise to get our daily dose of movement.

How much movement do we need?

It’s recommended that you get at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity movement each week. That breaks down to about 30 minutes, 5 days per week. However, there are increased health benefits with more time spent moving your body.

How much equipment do we need?

Movement does not have to be a complex exercise or done on expensive equipment. Simply taking a walk each day can provide your body and mind with the movement “medicine” it needs. Better yet, find a friend or family member, and get moving together. Social connection around movement makes it more fun, and has been shown to improve sustainable behavior change.
