Keep Active

It’s important to keep as physically active as possible whilst we all have to stay at home. 

Official advice from the Government is to stay at home and only go outside for one form of exercise a day, to shop for basic necessities, if there is a medical reason and travelling to and from work if it is deemed essential.

Here are some of our top tips to keep active whilst at home:

  • Sit less - make sure you take breaks from sitting down in front of the computer or TV. A good tip is to take a walk round the house for a couple of minutes, maybe potter around the garden or even play with your pet.
  • Use the stairs - walking up and down the stairs a few times throughout the day will keep you fit and active.
  • Do a home workout - see how creative you can be and use things around the house such as water bottles and tins of beans to use as exercise equipment to keep yourself moving. There's also lots of free home workouts available to view online to provide even more inspiration.

Stay Connected

Although we can’t physically visit family and friends right now, it is important to still stay connected. Some of our top tips include:

  • Use Skype, Face Time or video chats to keep in contact with others.
  • If technology isn't for you then just a simple phone call, writing a letter or sending an email can help you to feel less socially isolated
