Physical activity helps healthy growth and development. It: gives us energy, decreases stress, makes us stronger, and prolongs independence as we age. Regular physical activity in childhood develops: strength, heart health, and bone density. Many of the activities and behaviours listed in the links below are still possible while social distancing. Check them out!
