Active Living

Active living means that you find ways to be physically active every day. Examples are taking the stairs at work or turning off the TV and going for a walk outdoors or going dancing.

There are many reasons why active living is a good idea for you and your family. It's fun to be active together as a family and with friends. Kids who are active keep busy out of school and learn better in school. It's a good way to meet new people.

Being active can help protect you against heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, depression and some types of cancer. Along with healthy eating, physical activity helps you maintain a healthy weight.

To get started you need to decide to be active every day for at least 30 minutes - and you need to find activities that you enjoy. You'll find ways to help you get started via programs, trails, special events, etc on this website!
