Physical Activity and Yoga

The four main types of physical activity are aerobic, muscle-strengthening, bone strengthening, and stretching. One can do physical activity with light, moderate, or vigorous intensity. The level of intensity depends on how hard one has to work to do the activity. People vary in the amount of physical activity they need to control their weight.

Most people lead inactive lives and are not motivated to do more physical activities.  As obese people mostly are not active in the past, they should start physical activity slowly and build up the intensity a little at a time.

When starting out, one way to be active is to do more everyday activities, such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator and doing household chores and yard work. The next step is to start walking, biking, or swimming at a slow pace, and then build up the amount of time you exercise or the intensity level of the activity.

To lose weight and gain better health, it's important to get moderate-intensity physical activity. Choose activities that you enjoy and that fit into your daily life.
