Move more

Move more to a healthier you

No matter how old you are, introducing regular physical activity into your daily life can improve your quality of life by easing stress, improving sleep and helping to maintain a healthy weight – but taking up exercise doesn’t have to be scary…

It really can be easy to move more – always remember that doing something is better than doing nothing.


So, start small and gradually build up the length of time and intensity – even starting with just 10 minutes
at a time can be really good for you.


Moving more and getting active is proven to help reduce the risk of health conditions such as heart disease,
diabetes, obesity, some cancers and it can also improve mental health – so the earlier you start, the better
your long-term health benefits could be.
