Set a Daily Mobility Goal

Set a realistic daily mobility goal for yourself. This should be something active you can do every day that you enjoy. Your daily goal may start small and then change as you get more physically active.

For example:

  • Walk outside for 15 minutes in the morning and again in the evening​
  • Do daily chair exercises for 10 minutes first thing in the morning​
  • Light yoga or tai chi online or with a friend​

A great way to increase your amount of time being active each day is to​ find ways to incorporate physical activity into your daily tasks.

For example:

  • While doing the dishes, march in place for 1 minute.
  • While watching TV, stand up and sit down 5 times during commercial breaks.

Another way to think about mobility is to ask a friend to get involved with you. Quite often our social ties can help us stay committed to our mobility goals.
