Get Moving This May!

National Physical Fitness and Sport Month

Small Steps Set You On The Right Path

May is not just the cusp of summer, it is also National Physical Fitness and Sport Month! Whether we are already dedicated to healthy living or we want to take advantage of the new season to get a new start, this month presents the perfect opportunity to work on our physical fitness.

Why is staying active so important? For kids and teens, physical activity improves not just musical fitness but also bone and heart health. In adults, it is shown to reduce the risk for heart disease, some cancer, and type 2 diabetes. For seniors, getting active means improving cognitive function and reducing the risk of falls.

Even small changes can make a big difference. While children and adolescents are encouraged to get at least an hour of physical activity a day, that does not mean we need to begin that aggressively. Heading out for a walk after dinner, signing up for a community sports event as a family, or making time for a weekend bike ride puts us on the right path! With my recently adopted rescue pup, I make an effort to walk her many times a day, this is not only beneficial to her but also to me. Every little bit helps!
