Let’s get moving

Moving more will really help you stay healthier for longer.

It can be gardening, dancing, walking, cycling, taking the stairs, swimming, you name it. You can be active anywhere so long as what you're doing gets you out of breath.

A simple mini goal – such as using the toilet on a different floor at work – is the best way to start bringing more movement into your day.

Download our SMARTER goals template to create mini goals that are easier to stick to, so you feel better, every day.
