Keeping Active

Physical activity is any activity that moves your body and increases the amount of energy you use. Regular activity makes you stronger, improves your balance and helps prevent falls. Certain physical activity can also reduce your rate of bone loss associated with osteoporosis. Together with safe exposure to sunshine and a balanced nutrition with foods that are high in Calcium and vitamin D you can help keep your bones and muscles healthy and strong. It’s never too late to get active.

  • Ask your doctor or health care provider about the best type of exercise program for you.

  • Do at least 30 minutes of activity every day. You can break this into three sessions of 10 minutes.
