Be Active

Janeway Lifestyle Program

Being active means moving our bodies whenever possible through physical activity or play, and less sedentary (inactivity).

Tips to stay active:

  • Be physically active every day
  • Play outside whenever possible.
  • Take standing breaks to avoid long periods of sitting.
  • Participate in a variety of physical activities to learn fundamental movement skills. Fundamental movement skills are basic movement skills that everyone needs to know, such as kicking, catching, and throwing in order to be active for life.
  • Participate in leisure activities for fun, to build confidence, reduce stress and increase activity.
Visit the JLP Resources section to access evidence based information to help you in raising your child to be healthy and active.
