This month’s activity snack is a “calf stretch.” You can do this activity right at the start of your day. For this snack you want to have your heels on the ground and your toes a few inches up a wall. Next, lean forward with your hips while keeping your knee straight. Hold this position for about 30 seconds. This stretch should be repeated several times for each leg.
These “calf stretches” can be done anywhere. Try them.
- After you get out of bed
- Before you go for a walk, jog, or any other activity
- While watching TV
Activity snacks are short bursts of physical activity!
