“Making healthy changes does not mean you have to start running marathons.”
Canadian Cancer Society, Eat Well, Be Active
Daily activity can be part of everybody’s lifestyle. A good way to start is by setting a goal, such as integrating an extra 30 or 60 minutes of physical activity into your life, whether at school, at home, at work, or in your community.
Research shows that healthy and active kids maintain good habits into adulthood.
BC's Physical Activity Line provides free advice to British Columbians wishing to increase their level of physical activity. An interactive map of walks in BC is available at www.WalkBC.ca.
