No matter how old you are, introducing regular physical activity into your daily life can improve your overall health, ease stress and improve sleep!
The NHS recommends:
- young people aged between five and 18 should do 60 minutes of physical activity each day
- children under the age of five should do three hours of activity a day
If you are new to exercising, the NHS choices website has a digital Fitness Studio with some helpful instructor led videos, covering aerobics, strength and resistance, pilates, and yoga.
The NHS website also has a BMI (body mass index) calculator which can help you find out if you're a healthy weight. You can also use it to check your child's BMI.
Don't forget to always consult your GP or healthcare professional before beginning any exercise or diet programme.
