Active Southern West Virginia is honored to be selected as one of eight participating pilot sites for the national Move Your Way campaign for 2020 from the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). With this recognition comes a team from Communicate Health to support launch events, social media campaigns, and educational resources to share with people across southern West Virginia.
The goal of the campaign is to promote the recommendations from the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.
Adults – Need moderate-intensity aerobic activity for 150 minutes a week and muscle strengthening activities 2 days a week.
Teens and kids – Teens and kids ages 6 to 17 need 60 minutes of activity every day. Most of their 60 minutes can be moderate-intensity aerobic activity; anything that gets their heart beating faster counts. And at least 3 days a week, encourage them to step it up to vigorous-intensity aerobic activity, so they’re breathing fast and their heart is pounding.
As part of their daily 60 minutes, kids and teens also need: Muscle-strengthening activity at least 3 days a week Anything that makes their muscles work harder counts, like climbing or swinging on the monkey bars. Bone-strengthening activity at least 3 days a week. Bones need pressure to get stronger. Running, jumping, and other weight-bearing activities all count.
Move Your Waysm helps people make small changes that can lead to big health benefits. In the long term, regular physical activity can help prevent chronic health problems like type 2 diabetes. In the short term, even small increases in physical activity can boost mood, reduce stress, and improve sleep.
So, join us in promoting our local Move Your Way campaign. By spreading the word that physical activity is something everyone can do, you can help people in our community get more active and live longer, healthier lives.
