There are many forms of exercise and everyone can benefit from doing a little more, more often. Physical activity is everything from everyday activity, to playing sports or joining an exercise class. Increasing our everyday demanding activities such as gardening, climbing the stairs, mopping the floor or waking the children to school instead of driving, can be a good place to start to increase physical activity levels. You may, however, prefer to join a sports club, an exercise group, or a walking group and enjoy a more social element when exercising.

Whatever you choose remember you need to enjoy it and remember to get the most out of exercising, whatever you choose to do should last for 10 minutes or longer
