Ortonville Get moving and stay healthy School menu Tuesday, March 30: Breakfast: It can also help you think more clearly. It takes some effort to get physically active but you don't have to get physi- cal activity every day. Exercise can be measured in weekly totals. The goal is to get at least two and a half hours of physical activity every single week. If you've missed a few days, you can still catch up On the weekends. Make a habit of fitting physical ac- tivity into your routines. What exactly is physical activity? There are two types of physical activities: aerobic and muscle-strengthening. Aerobic ac- tivities also called endurance activities are those in which you move your large muscles rhythmically for a long time. There are different levels of aerobic activity. With moderate-intensity aero- bic activities, you can talk while you do them, but not sing. Examples in- clude walking briskly, water aerobics, ballroom or lin e dancing, general gar- dening or sports where you catch and throw. With vigorous-intensity activities, you can only say a few words before pausing to catch your breath. These in- clude jogging, swimrning laps, aerobic dancing, sports with a lot of running, and heavy gardening such as continu- ous digging or hoeing. Muscle-strengthening happens when your muscles do more work than they are used to. Activities that strengthen muscle include heavy gar- dening, lifting weights, push-ups on the floor or against the wall, sit-ups and working with resistance bands (long, wide rubber strips that stretch). Try out a variety of different activi- ties. You can enjoy activities with friends, with family, with co-workers. There are lots of ways to have physical activity enhance your life. Many people in the country are very inactive. Even moving from 30 min- utes a week to 90 minutes a week, there's a reduction of 20 percent in death from all causes indicating a little bit of change results in a lot of benefit. Some physical activity, no matter how much, is better than none. You get substantial health benefits from at least two and a half hours a week of moder- ate-intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous- intensity aerobic physical activity. For more extensive health benefits, in- crease your aerobic physical activity to five hours a week of moderate-inten- sity or two and a half hours of vigor- ous-intensity aerobic physical activity. So how do you change? How can you start? Start low and go slow. For example, walk a little more to the bus stop on your way to work, or park your car at the far end of the parking lot. Start with a 10-minute walk a couple of times a week. As you get used to it, increase the walk to 15., 20 and 30 rain- Whole Grain Cereal, Pancake/Sausage on a Stick, Mixed Fruit Sauce, Milk.

Research shows that all Amer- icans need physical activity for good health. We need to make sure that we're doing everything possible to tay healthy, not just because it will help people fulfill their goals for them- selves, but also because of the financial crunch facing the country in health care. Regular physical activity improves your overall health and fitness. It can help reduce high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol and other risk factors for disease. Physical activity can play a role in preventing many diseases, in- cluding heart disease, stroke, some cancers, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis and depression. Physical activity can also improve your ability m do the things you need to each day. It builds muscle strength and endurance, which may help pre- vent injuries and make it easier for you to climb stairs and get up from chairs.
