Staying active in all weathers can be a challenge. The Living Well team recommend the following ideas to build these activities into your day-to-day life:

  1. Walk or cycle part of your journey to work or the shops

  2. Get off before your usual bus stop to walk part of the way

  3. If you drive, park further away from your workplace and walk or cycle the rest of the way

  4. Go for a walk or cycle with your friend rather than meeting for coffee

  5. Set an alarm on your phone to move every 30mins
