Physical Activity Recommendations
It is recommended that an adult does 150 minutes of moderate physical activity a week, but what does this mean to you and how do you go about it? What is Moderate Activity
One way to tell if you’re working at a moderate level is if you can still talk, but you can’t sing the words to a song Examples include; a brisk walk, gardening or housework.
150 minutes might sound a lot, but you can break it down into smaller chunks during the week and then again during the day.
These are our suggestions for making this goal more achievable 30 minutes on 5 days out of the week
You can split the 30 minutes up into 10 or
20 minutes on 7 days out of the week – again this could be spilt up as above
