Physical activity

Think actively about being as active as possible!

Aim: To do at least 3 HOURS PER WEEK. This can include your exercise regime.

Activities

These should be integrated into your daily life as much as possible; especially if you’re not a fan of exercise!

  • Walking. Gardening. House work. Shopping. General errands.

Top tips

  • Keep you head up: An upright posture is good for the body and frame of mind.
  • Every step is a success: Use every step as a visual for going in the right direction: Onward and upwards.
  • Broaden the mind: Walk different routes and do different things; the same makes us insane!
  • Speed up: Integrate faster intervals of walking into a long duration, or do a short brisk walk for 20-30 mins. It’s as effective as a jog!
  • Find the sun: Vitamin D makes us happier and healthier!
