Why Be Active?
Regular physical activity helps to build a healthy body and mind. A mix of activities that build strength, heart health, as well as balance and coordination, is best for all ages.
Being Outdoors in Nature
Be Active in All Seasons
Enjoy the different seasons. In the summer, there are many water and land activities we can safely enjoy. In the fall, we can enjoy the trails and the beautiful fall colours. In the winter, there are many activities that we can do in the snow and on ice. Don’t forget to practice sun safety when being active outdoors.
Safe Places to Be Active
Sometimes the barrier to being active is not feeling safe to walk or cycle in your community. Learn how to feel safer being active in your community and get involved in helping create a more physically active place for you to live, work and play. Find a way to be more active at work. If you enjoy walking, consider participating in or starting up a walking club.
