Older Adults

Through user-friendly infographics and tips, Singapore Physical Activity Guidelines empowers older adults to find opportunities to stay active while building their muscular strength and functional balance. It is important to regularly participate in a variety of activities at this life stage as it can help older adults better manage frailty and common lifestyle chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension.

Engaging in a sufficient amount and variety of physical activities and limiting sedentary behaviour can help older adults achieve a better quality of life.

Pregnant & Postpartum Women

Regular physical activity can help minimise excessive pregnancy-related weight gain and improve mental wellbeing postpartum.

Preschool Children
(0-6 years old)

Singapore Physical Activity Guidelines helps parents and caregivers recognise the importance of movement for children right from birth, before they even start learning to walk. The guidelines provide tips on how preschool children can gradually accumulate more physical activity as they grow by engaging in a variety of activities and limiting sedentary time.

Meeting these recommendations helps build the foundation for preschool children to stay active and promote the development of movement skills.

School Children & Youths
(7-17 years old)

Singapore Physical Activity Guidelines promotes the importance of engaging school children and youths in a variety of physical activities and limiting their sedentary behaviour, both during school and leisure time. Meeting these recommendations promotes the development of movement skills, stronger muscles and bones,and better cognitive function, which could contribute to their school performance.

Developing active habits from young can better prepare and help children to continue leading an active lifestyle as they transit towards adulthood.

(18-64 years old)

Singapore Physical Activity Guidelines highlights that adults obtain substantial health benefits when they engage in moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity of between 150 and 300 minutes per week, which can be accumulated from any duration of activity throughout the week. On top of this, Singapore Physical Activity Guidelines also recommends that adults engage in a variety of other activities to reap the additional health benefits, such as exercises for developing muscular strength and light-intensity activities to breakup sedentary periods.

Every minute moving counts,and engaging in a variety of activities helps promote better physical and mental health outcomes.
