We all know moving more is good for us.

It's just knowing the level of activity that's right for you - especially if you have had a fall, are recovering from an illness or are living with a long-term health conidition. Many people are having to spend more time at home than they normally would. This can make it harder to stay active and have an effect on our motivation.

I have a long term health condition or illness

Although having a long term health condition or illness may affect how much you can do, don’t assume it will stop you from being active altogether. It may be more important than ever to exercise to help you to get better!

Being more active isn't about working up a sweat. It's just about moving more each day in whatever way works for you. Walking is often very safe but if you have specific concerns about any health conditions, ask your GP about what’s safe for you.
