We know that getting the recommended amount of daily physical activity can be difficult. It is also critical for keeping ourselves healthy and free of cardiovascular disease. People who are more active also feel better and live longer.
While most of us know the importance of physical activity, life sometimes gets in our way, and we postpone our commitment to living an active and healthy life.
Knowing how hard it is to consistently achieve physical activity goals, the mActive Team at Johns Hopkins has started on an exciting path to discovering new ways to keep people active. We are searching for new resources to help us fit more physical activity into our busy schedules and to help us commit ourselves to a healthier future.
So far, we have obtained promising initial results by using activity trackers and novel cell-phone based health strategies to keep your motivation up and keep you moving.
