Its day 2 of our #5W2WChallenge. We hope you enjoyed the first day of the challenge yesterday and got to connect with lots of different people.
Today’s challenge is Be Active.
Regular physical activity is often linked with lower rates of depression and anxiety across all age groups. Exercise is really good for positive well-being. But it doesn’t need to be particularly intense for you to feel good – slower-paced activities, such as walking, can have the benefit of encouraging social interactions as well providing some level of exercise.
The government have stated that we are able to complete one form of exercise a day outdoors – for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household – but physical activity doesn’t have to be in the gym, and it doesn’t have to be outside.
Today, why not try out one of the following ideas:
•Take part in an online fitness class. There are lots of home-workouts available online for free.
•Go for a walk or cycle.
•Tidy some rooms around your house.
•Do some gardening.
