    Increase your activity gradually over time. Inactive people should “start low and go slow” by gradually increasing how often and how long activities are done.
    Protect yourself by using appropriate gear and sports equipment, look for safe environments, follow rules and policies, and making good choices about when, where, and how to be active.
    If you have chronic conditions and symptoms you should first consult your doctor about the type and amount of activity that is appropriate.
