Try to do at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity, such as cycling or walking, every week
Moderate intensity physical activity
Moderate-intensity physical activity is when your heart beats faster, your breathing speeds up but you can still talk. Do you really have to exercise to do moderate-intensity exercise? No way! Even in your daily life, you often do activities that are moderately intensive (unnoticed), such as:
- Light work in the garden such as raking
- Vacuuming or cleaning windows
But also consider activities such as:
- Taking the (electric) bike to the supermarket
- Taking a walk
Five times a week 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise already contributes to a healthy lifestyle!
Choose an activity you enjoy doing, this will make it easier and more fun to stick with for a longer period of time!
