Eat Smart Move More LogoTips & Strategies for Moving More

  • Move more every day to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
  • Move more, one step at a time
  • The more you move the better for you.

Some suggested strategies to help you move more include:

  • Organize a lunch walk.
  • Promote a different physical activity each week. Examples: take the stairs week, walk to lunch week, yoga after work week.
  • Organize a community service day that involves physical activity. Examples: work in a community garden, habitat for humanity, or volunteer at a food bank.
  • Create a walking challenge between different sections. The team with the most steps/miles logged at the end of the challenge wins. Access the walking logs.
