Get the facts

Time is the biggest barrier for many of us when it comes to getting more exercise. But doing more doesn’t have to mean spending hours in the gym.

The key is to build simple healthy habits in to your everyday routine.

The NHS recommends 150 minutes of physical activity each week. That could mean one 30-minute session, or three 10-minute sessions, 5 days a week. Whatever works best for you and your day-to-day schedule.

Even the smallest amount of activity can boost your health and wellbeing and you might be surprised to learn what counts! In addition to things like swimming, home workouts and practicing yoga, activities like gardening, walking the dog or even taking the stairs instead of the lift can make a big difference.

Knowing the real benefits of exercise makes it more appealing to start building simple healthy habits for a change that lasts.

Top tip: Mix it up!

Try to incorporate a mixture of aerobic activity (anything that raises your heart rate and causes you to feel warm and out of breath) and strength or resistance exercises into your routine.

With any type of exercise, it's essential to consult your GP, doctor or physician before beginning anything new, especially if you're getting older, you're overweight, you have an existing medical problem or you haven't been very active for a while. Your healthcare professional can advise if the exercise is appropriate, or and if not, may be able to recommend an alternative.
