This week's theme is Choosing Your Activity
Passion, convenience, mobility, comfort, socializing, solitude, expense...those are just some of the factors to consider when choosing an activity. The bottom line is,
to be healthy you must be active
. So where to start? What to choose? Well the first step is to have an honest conversation with yourself to determine what activities fit your lifestyle and personality.
The general rule of thumb is that to feel your best, you need at least 2½ hours of moderate activity a week. Any activity that raises your heart rate and makes you breathe harder can be included. You can split up the activity into segments of 10 minutes or more throughout the day and week.

The key is discovering an activity or activities that you enjoy, will bring you happiness and that you will commit to doing.
