Stay Active as You Get Older

Physical activity is good for people of all ages. Staying active can help:

  • Prevent heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and some types of cancer
  • Improve your strength and balance so you can stay independent
  • Keep you from getting depressed

Before you begin…

If you have a health problem like heart disease, diabetes, or obesity, talk to your doctor about starting an exercise program.

Aim for 2 hours and 30 minutes a week of aerobic activities.

  • Choose activities that make your heart beat faster, like walking fast, dancing, or raking leaves.
  • Start slowly – as little as 5 minutes at a time. Build up to 30 minutes on most days of the week, at least 10 minutes at a time.
  • Tell your doctor if you have shortness of breath, chest pain, or unplanned weight loss.
