It doesn’t have to be organised, structured or done in the latest gear – you can get active anywhere and anytime. It could involve going for a walk, cleaning the house, gardening or playing a game of volleyball.
Doing at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity activity (brisk walking) on five or more days each week will help you to:
- Maintain control of your weight
- Lower your risk of developing diabetes and high blood pressure
- Improve your energy, appearance and self-esteem
- Clear your mind
- Improve the quality of your sleep
- Reduce stress
Increased physical activity will also help you to complete everyday activities without fatigue and maintain mobility into old age.
10 Minute Fitness Boost
This 10-minute workout requires nothing but a wall and a chair (and water – it will get you sweating!) Once you build up your endurance, you can repeat the workout for a 20- or even 30-minute fitness blast.
Rest for 30 seconds between each exercise.
