Keep your body Active

Try to do at least 30 minutes of moderate activity every day. Build this up gradually if you are not used to exercise. Check with your doctor if you have any questions or concerns.  Keep it interesting, try different things and things you enjoy.

Go for walks – it is an easy way to get out and about. Join a walking group or go with family and friends.

Do some gardening or other household activities – sow pot plants or maintain a flower bed. Grow some vegetables. Cleaning the car, washing windows or sweeping / hovering are all good ways to keep moving.

Keep up your hobbies or take up a new one! – whatever you enjoy or have always wanted to do – swimming, dancing, yoga the list is endless, choose something that appeals to you.

Use ‘Exergames’ – you can find these on Wii Fit, Playstation Move and Xbox Kinect – this is a way to exercise at home though virtual exercise games such as bowling, tennis, the list is endless!

Quote: “ I love my walks, I try to get out every day, it really helps me especially if I feel a bit low..... I feel so much better afterwards.”
