Moderate Activity

Lots of fun options are provided for you to choose from to do on your own. These are DIY days, so have fun with it! This includes any type of activity requiring you to move around using 40-70% of your energy. Shoot to do an activity continuously for 25-50 minutes twice per week.

Examples of Moderate Activities: Walking, hiking, biking, frisbee, swimming, etc.

The more moderate movement you do throughout the day, the better. Movement in general reduces stagnation in the body, which can result in immobility, pain, and disease. Our bodies were designed to move, not sit. So get moving!
