Whatever your age, regular physical activity helps you stay healthy!

For all of us, young and old, regular physical activity is the most important strategy for staying healthy!

  • Compared to being sedentary, moderate-intensity physical activity is associated with better immune function.
  • Likewise, regular physical activity is associated with lower levels of anxiety and perceived stress (which many of us are feeling in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic).

The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommend 150-300 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity and 2 sessions per week of muscle strength training.
