Active Living Every Day

Description

Active Living Every Day (ALED) is an evidence-based behavior change program. The approach is unique because it addresses the root causes of inactivity rather than simply prescribing exercise. The program allows the flexibility of being offered independently or in conjunction with existing community-based physical activity programs. Using facilitated group-based problem-solving methods to integrate physical activity into everyday living, participants learn the skills they need to become and stay physically active:

  • Identifying and addressing barriers to physical activity
  • Increasing self-confidence about becoming physically active
  • Creating realistic goals and rewards for physical activity
  • Developing social support
  • Recovering from lapses in physical activity
