How do you determine activity level for MFP?

I'm sedentary, I know that, but at what point do I become mildly active, or active? Is there a standard or definition?

    I just left mine at sedentary, added my exercise minutes & manually halved the calories that MFP said the exercise had burned.
    Then, the more you exercise, the more calories you have to burn and if you have a slower week or month, you don't have to adjust your daily calories (set to sedentary).
    It all takes care of itself that way (or so I found for myself).

    I completely agree with PaytraB. I put mine at sedentary and use a HRM to determine my calories exerted beyond that.
