Walk.   Run.   Dance.   Play.   What's your move?

Everyone needs physical activity to stay healthy. You know kids need physical activity to grow up strong and healthy. It's also been proven that physical activity improves academic performance, mood, sleep, and even school attendance.
While it is important during times of regular school, staying active is important every day. Let's get started. How much daily physical activity are we talking about? Kids and teens require 60 minutes or more a day.

And small changes can add up to big benefits! Getting your 60 minutes can be done all at one time or in intervals as small as one minute at a time. Everything counts.
The Move Your Way tools, videos, and fact sheets on this page have tips that make it easier to get a little more active. Small changes can add up to big benefits!
