Being active is good for you both physically and mentally


Have you been moving less? Are you worried about how little you move?

We should all aim to have some movement or activity in our daily routine however, it can be tough to find the motivation. But there’s never been a better time to make a start in moving for at least 30 minutes each day.

30 minutes per day

Three lots of 10 minutes, six lots of five minutes. It doesn’t matter how you do it, but the Let’s Get Moving belief is that only 30 minutes of moving and stretching each day can keep you stronger and healthier.

If 30 minutes is easy for you, then set yourself a bigger goal.

Why is moving important?

Being physically active or just moving about is great for your mind and your body. It can:

  • improve your balance, reducing the risk of falls in later life
  • reduce the chances of getting some diseases
  • strengthen your bones and muscles
  • help you sleep better
  • reduce anxiety

Movement is a big part of helping us to live healthy longer lives.

Choosing what to do is all based around you, so make sure it’s

achievableconvenient and enjoyable
