Exercise Right Week – Just Move!

Transform your health and wellbeing with just 30 minutes of daily movement! Whether you're facing health challenges or seeking to boost fitness, guidance from exercise experts is key. It's recommended to incorporate a mix of fitness, strength, balance and flexibility exercises into your routine, with at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity activity most days.

Why 30 minutes a day?

  • Australian physical activity guidelines recommend at least 30 minutes of exercise a day for optimal health
  • Most people can fit 30 minutes of movement into their busy schedules, or get 30 minutes over the course of a day
  • 30 minutes of exercise every day has been proven to improve your mental and physical health (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2022)

Why is exercise so vital for healthy ageing?

  • Reduces the risk of chronic conditions like dementia and heart disease while aiding in condition management.
  • Enhances memory and brain function, lowering the risk of dementia.
  • Improves balance to reduce the risk of falls
  • Strengthens bones, preventing fractures
  • Boosts physical function, promoting independence
  • Strengthens the immune system, aiding in quicker recovery from illness
  • Community-based programs combat loneliness, fostering relationships

To incorporate exercise, rediscover past activities you enjoyed or try new ones. From group classes to leisurely walks, there are many ways to stay active. And remember, it's never too late to start integrating exercise into your daily life.

Here are some examples:

  • Aerobic Exercises: Walking, cycling, swimming
  • Strength Exercises: Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, push-ups, sit-ups, heavy gardening
  • Balance Exercises: Shifting weight with your feet, practicing balance poses like the tree pose
  • Incidental Physical Activity: Gardening, housework, walking to the bus/grocery store, taking stairs
