Developing an Activity Plan: The Difference Between Activity and Exercise

Developing an Activity Plan: The Difference Between Activity and Exercise

Many people use the terms “activity” and “exercise” interchangeably, but they actually have different meanings. Activity refers to any movement that you do throughout the day, such as walking, gardening, or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. These activities are typically part of your daily routine and may not necessarily be structured. They also may not be done with the specific goal of improving fitness. Exercise, on the other hand, is a type of physical activity that is structured and planned with the specific goal of improving fitness. This includes exercises like weightlifting, running, or taking a yoga class.
