Looking for inspiration?

Here are a few ideas to get you thinking about the ways you can incorporate physical activity into your daily routine:

  • Sign up for Bike to Work Month Ottawa, and join the Carleton team by searching “Carleton University”, for your chance to win great prizes from Bike to Work Ottawa!
  • Take a lunch hour walk through the Arboretum
  • Enjoy some lane swimming at Athletics or join a spring fitness program — there are so many to choose from! (please note the pool will be closed for maintenance and will re-open on May 5)
  • Cycle, walk, or jog to work
  • Go for a hike at one of the many parks around town, such as the Mer Bleue Bog, or Petrie Island
  • Play a game of soccer or touch football with friends and family
  • Turn off the TV and take your neighbour’s dog for a walk
  • Dust off the canoe and enjoy a paddle at Lac La Peche or Meech Lac in Gatineau Park

You can engage in any kind of physical activity that suits your interests—whether it’s here in Ottawa or out of town (for those who are travelling). So, come on Carleton! Let’s get out there and get active.
