WITH YOUR WORLD 20 December, 2019
The WHO is calling on all youth between ages 11 and 17 to increase their physical activity.
In a recent study conducted by researchers from the World Health Organization and published in the journal The Lancet Child & Adolescent Health, over 80% of school-age teens from 146 countries around the world do not meet the minimum recommended levels for physical activity a day. This is why it has become necessary to promote making exercise a habit in order to care for your current and future health.
But fostering awareness in children starts at home. Just as with sports, there are certain daily activities – that when they are appropriate for the physical resistance levels of each individual – use just as much or more energy and can be counted as time spent doing exercise. The MedlinePlus website recommends the following:
- Walk or bike to school
- Take your dog out for a walk
- Play in a body of water, such as in the pool of an apartment complex
- Go out dancing
- Do housework (sweeping, mopping or vacuuming the floors)
- Opt for video or computer games that involve moving your whole body
60 minutes of moderate physical activity a day is the recommended amount for teens.
