Exercise? I hear you say not for me? watch this
When it comes to physical exercise I have heard many reasons from people such as "I don't have time", "I am busy looking after the family", " I get in late", etc. However, I can tell you from my experience working in this field that even 10 minutes a day can make a huge difference to our physical health and also our mental wellbeing.
NHS website mentions that adults aged between 19-64 should aim to be physically active every day, at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity activity a week, that roughly 30mins a day for 5 days.
Moderate activity is when you can talk but unable to sing, so your heart rate is raised and your breathing is fast and warm
Examples are brisk walking, riding a bike, dancing, tennis, hiking, gardening, aerobic workouts.
As mentioned earlier if you are not used to exercise the best way is to start off slow and then build a pace. Listen to your body and it will work with you.
Exercise has helped me by improving my mental health, more confidence and also my blood pressure has been reduced.
so why dont you have a go if you need more advice reach out to me and also the local oneyoukent on the www.kent.gov.uk website
