Baseline activities are the basic, light-intensity activities of daily life that most people do without noticing. They include things like walking slowly, lifting lightweight objects, and climbing small stairs.
Health-enhancing activities are the types of physical activity that improve health. They may be brisk walking, dancing, playing sports, or using weights to strengthen muscles. They also reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, and promote bone and muscle health.
The Guidelines encourage people to do health-enhancing activities regularly as part of their total exercise and lifestyle habits. They also recommend limiting sedentary activities and spending less time watching TV or other leisure screen time.
Getting Started: How to Start Your Project
A baseline is a set of information that you use as a guide to compare the progress of your project with your actual results. It should include your best estimates for task duration, start and finish dates, costs, and other project variables that you want to monitor.
Baseline surveys are often necessary for many projects, especially those that have a long term impact on a community or a population group. They allow you to see whether your project is on track and what needs to be done to improve the situation. You can also use them to identify potential problems or risks. In this way, you can make changes to the project plan based on the findings and ensure that it is successful.
