There are many ways to get moving, walking briskly, jogging, swimming, dancing, and bicycling, to name a few.  Your local city or community usually have programs for adults, and children of all ages, who want to learn a new sport or participate on competitive or non-competitive teams.  These may include soccer, basketball, tennis, volleyball, swimming, gymnastics, and badminton.  Dance studios are another place to add variety that may include jazz, hip-hop, ballet, and tap dancing.  If you belong to a gym, they usually offer a variety of classes and may have some that children or teens can attend, especially in the summer. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that children and adolescents get 60 minutes of physical activity on most, preferably all, days of the week. The recommendation for adults is 2 hours and 30 minutes (150 minutes) of moderate-intensity aerobic activity (brisk walking) every week.

Put on some music and dance!  Or get a buddy, join a team and get moving!  

Love, Health & Happiness,
