Activity Program

Establish a reasonable activity program:

  • Pick an activity that you enjoy. Make your activity fun by having a friend or family member join you.
  • Set a weekly activity schedule. Put down when, where and what you will be doing for your activity program.
  • Make sure to warm up and cool down before and after your activity. Include flexibility activities which will help you avoid injuries.
  • Give your body a chance to adjust to your new activity program.
  • Begin your program by doing 30 minutes a day. If 30 minutes is too difficult for you don’t have enough time, break the time up throughout the day. Example- walk for 10 minutes in the morning and work in the garden for 10 minutes in the afternoon and take a 10 minute walk after dinner.
  • Stop exercising if you experience severe pain and swelling.
  • Choose a comfortable time of day to do your activity, not too soon after eating or when the air temperature is too warm.
  • Wear clothes that are comfortable and shoes that offer good support (see Activity Apparel).
  • If you have an existing health problem, contact your physician before beginning any vigorous physical activity. Sometimes, restrictions might have to be placed on the level of your participation.
