If you would like to benefit from being more physically active and don’t know where to start or what to do, then we can help you. We can seek out opportunities to help increase your activity levels. We can assess your activity levels and provide you with information about local opportunities like walking groups or exercise on referral schemes. Depending on how inactive you are our Wellness Coaches can work with you to start setting some small goals and working towards achieving the recommended levels of activity - there is something for everyone!

Regular exercise can help to reduce your risk of a heart attack, lower your risk of long-term diseases and improve posture and mobility. It can also improve your appearance, help depression, boost your immune system, help you sleep better and keep you more mentally alert. Try to build exercise into your daily life — take the stairs instead of the lift, do housework or gardening, and go for weekend walks.
With a hectic work and home life, it's easy to feel like we don't have the time or energy to exercise. In fact, exercise can improve a busy life — it raises your energy levels, relieves stress, lifts your mood and helps keep you healthy. It's much easier to fit exercise into a busy day than you may think — pick something you enjoy and start with just a few minutes a day.
