Move More Initiative
Move More with Lifestyle Activity
Today’s teens are often just as sedentary as 60 year olds.
Increased lifestyle activity can reduce chronic pain.
On average, dog owners walk 22 minutes more per day.
Activity in the late afternoon boosts energy by 20% for the “second shift”.
Lifestyle activity is referred to as NEAT or non-exercise activity thermogenesis. Big words that mean physical actions resulting from daily living. Taking the dog for a walk, carrying your basket of groceries, parking farther from the entrance at work, taking the stairs, vacuuming, and gardening — are all examples of NEAT or Lifestyle Activity.
“Move to live and live to move.” Toni Sorenson
Making a choice to move more by increasing your lifestyle or NEAT activity is a conscious choice that has helped many people improve their health, increase their energy, maintain or lose weight, and sleep better.
