Being Active is Good for Our Health
Are you getting enough exercise?
It is recommended by the Chief Medical Officer that all adults should accumulate at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity over the course of each week. This can be achieved in a number of ways….
- 30 minutes moderate physical activity on most days of the week.
- A two and a half hour walk or cycle at the weekends.
- A combination of activity options equalling a minimum of 150 minutes.
It doesn’t matter what you do provided the level of physical activity is high enough to increase the heart rate, make you feel warmer and make you breathe a little faster.
