Move More, Sit Less, Sleep Soundly
An integrated approach for healthy children and youth
Sleep, sedentary behaviour, and physical activity are the three “movement behaviours” that combined together make up the entire 24-hour period. Each fall on a continuum of movement ranging from little movement to high movement.
Traditionally, movement behaviours have been studied and promoted in isolation. Recent research has highlighted the natural interactions between sleep, sedentary behaviour, and physical activity. In line with the growing and compelling evidence on this topic, the Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines: An Integration of Physical Activity, Sedentary Behaviour, and Sleep for the Early Years (0-4 years) and for Children and Youth (5-17 years) have recently been developed.
This presentation will provide an overview of the new guidelines and the evidence that informed them. In addition, findings on the proportion of young Canadians meeting the new guidelines will be presented, along with resources and ideas to support the implementation of these new guidelines into practice.
