Staying Active

Due to COVID-19, we are all spending a bit more time at home which is why staying active is more important than ever. It’s all about finding something that suits you.

Sport England’s ‘Join the Movement’ campaign features some useful resources to help you stay active in whichever way you prefer.

 

 

Not sure what you can do?

 

Here is the current advice:

• Keep at least 2m metres or more away from anyone outside of your household at all times, or 1 metre with a face covering or other precautions.

• If you are self-isolating with symptoms, or someone in your household has them, you shouldn’t leave home but that doesn’t mean you should stop moving. It’s really important to use movement and activity as a way of breaking up your routine, if you feel well enough. Cook, play active games, dance, go into the garden if you’ve got one.

Staying Active At Home

Everyday activities count!

 

You don’t need gym equipment at home to stay active. Everyday activities such as doing the vacuuming, hanging out the washing, and mowing the lawn all count towards your daily activity levels.

Try to break up long periods of sitting by getting up and moving for at least five minutes each hour.
