The Buddy System

Stay Connected with Family and Friends

It is sometimes hard to do regular physical activity on your own. Invite a friend to join you. Have fun and socialize at the same time.

Remember, every little bit helps.

  • Plan some time each day to exercise
  • Exercise with someone else
  • Exercise at the same time each day -after breakfast or lunch
  • Write down the number of exercises you do each day (see table at the back of booklet)

Before you start your exercises be sure to check the following:

  • Do you feel OK?
  • Have you eaten?
  • Check your footwear. Are you wearing shoes with a non-slip bottom?
  • Check your surroundings. Is there any clutter, or things you could trip over around you?
