Get Active

Being active helps your physical health, mental health, reduces disease, assists with weight management and strengthens bones & muscles. No matter your age exercise is important.

How can you build new exercise into your day? Have you considered using the stairs at work? Get off the bus a stop earlier and walk the rest of the way?  Take a walk outside at lunch time? Instead of taking that short trip in the car can you ride or walk instead?

The Department of Health and Aged Care recommend the following for adults aged 18-64.

Adults should be active most days, preferably every day. Each week, adults should do either:

  • 2.5 to 5 hours of moderate intensity physical activity – such as a brisk walk, golf, mowing the lawn or swimming
  • 1.25 to 2.5 hours of vigorous intensity physical activity – such as jogging, aerobics, fast cycling, soccer or netball
  • an equivalent combination of moderate and vigorous activities.

Include muscle-strengthening activities as part of your daily physical activity on at least 2 days each week. This can be – push-ups, pull-ups, squats or lunges, lifting weights and household tasks that involve lifting, carrying or digging.

Aim to do some physical activity each day!
