CBC Challenges You to MOVE MORE During the Month of October

There is a national challenge happening in Canada for the month of October, sponsored by CBC, our national broadcasting company.

Here is what they have to say about it on their site…

"  Why?

This fall, Live Right Now's focus is Back to Routine. 

It's a natural fit for September after the lazy days of summer. Once October rolls in, we usually settle into some habits -- but not necessarily good ones.

One of the biggest culprits: sedentary behaviour. Many of us find ourselves glued to our desks, and Statistics Canada says 46 per cent of Canadians are physically inactive during their leisure time.

This inactive lifestyle can lead to many health problems. A study published as part of a Lancet series on world health and physical activity estimated that physical inactivity caused 5.3 million of the 57 million deaths worldwide in 2008.

Study after study confirms that moderate physical activity - like brisk walking - reduces your health risks.
So let's get up and get moving! Take our 31 day challenge to move more. "

Here is a calendar with some suggested activities for each day… you all know I am not a fan of earphones and earbuds when walking or running alone, for safety reasons, but some of the other suggestions look great!

Check out the web site if you would like to download a large printable poster version for yourself.

Challenge yourself to MOVE MORE every day in October.


  1. Amen sister! We can all benefit from moving more.
