*SPECIAL SUMMER TIPS FROM THE CDC*

Be Physically Active

The summer is a great time to play outdoor games, garden, and be active. Start a new routine that combines fun and physical activity. Scientific evidence shows that more active people are less likely to be obese or to have high blood pressure; type II diabetes mellitus; osteoporosis; coronary artery disease and stroke; depression; colon cancer; and premature death than inactive people.

Tips:

  • Adults should engage in moderate-intensity physical activities for at least 30 minutes on 5 or more days of the week.

  • Children and adolescents should participate in at least 60 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity most, preferably all, days of the week.

  • Start at an easy pace and increase time and distance gradually.

  • Don't overdo it. Prevent injuries.
