Looking for motivation to stay active this summer? The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommend adults engage in moderate physical activity for at least 2 1/2 hours each week - that's about 1/2 hour a day on most days. When it's hot outside, going for a brisk walk during the cool early morning or evening hours is a good way to meet this goal. See more tips below for creating an active lifestyle.
