Top Tips to Stay Active this April

Physical activity has been shown to have numerous benefits for both the mind and body. It can help to improve cardiovascular health, increase muscular strength and endurance, and improve overall flexibility and mobility. In addition to the physical benefits, being active has also been linked to improvements in mental health, including reduced symptoms of depression and anxiety, increased self-esteem, and improved cognitive function.

The Wellbeing team has decided to challenge ourselves to increase our activity levels throughout the month of April. By setting a goal and committing to being more active, we hope to not only improve our own health and wellbeing but also inspire others to do the same.

Whether it's taking a walk around the block during lunch, participating in a fitness class, or simply stretching for a few minutes each day, every little bit of activity counts.

We invite you to join us in this challenge and take the first step towards a healthier, more active lifestyle.
Here's some top tips from our Wellbeing Team about how to stay active this April.

Try to fit in activity when doing every day chores. Play some upbeat music whilst doing the polishing or hoovering and dance like nobody is watching!

Always have lots of small, achievable goals. I like to keep active by going to the gym a couple of times a week.

When I'm there I make smaller goals within my first 10 minutes and see if I've been able to hit them by the time I'm heading home.

On a nice day, when the sun is shining, make yourself a sandwich for your lunch and walk to your local park, find a nice bench and have a little picnic.

Try to incorporate something that makes you happy into the art of being active. For example, why not visit somewhere you love and then try to incorporate a walk during that visit.

There are lots of local exercise groups you can join which can help with being active. You could even join one of our groups here at Wellbeing Enterprises, why not try drumming?
