In this qualitative, phenomenological study, 15 stroke survivors indicated that performing moderate to vigorous physical activity (PA), performing activities of daily living (ADLs), and avoiding sedentary behavior were important types of PA. For adults with stroke for whom moderate PA is challenging, performing ADLs may be an acceptable alternative. OT practitioners can assist clients to decrease sedentary behavior and increase PA through the performance of meaningful activities and occupations.
