The Surgeon General lists the items of physical activity in order of less vigorous and more vigorous. Moderate physical activity as defined by the general can be defined by things as simple as common house chores or recreational activities. Some of the more common items listed in order of less vigorous to more vigorous would include: washing and waxing a car for 45-60 minutes, gardening for 30-45 minutes, raking leaves for 30 minutes, and shoveling snow for 15 minutes.
