Getting active and spending time outdoors are important for our overall physical and mental wellness. When staying home and practicing physical distancing, there are still plenty of ways to be active and get outside.
It is recommended that adults between the ages of 18 and 64 engage in 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity aerobic physical activity per week, in bouts of 10 minutes or more. With physical activity, more is better! Increased physical activity leads to greater health benefits.
Note that for those who are self-isolating without symptoms, you must stay on your own property and keep a 2 metre distance from any shared spaces. If you have symptoms, you have to stay inside your house.
