Ways to be active
Hitting the gym. Pounding the pavement. Some of the terms for exercise sound unappealing, but it’s all about finding things that make you feel good – find a fit and you’re halfway there.
Being active is vital for children. The NHS recommends kids are active for an average of at least 60 mins a day. It strengthens bones and helps them avoid illness, but it can also improve social skills, improve mental health and even boost results at school.
If you’ve got a child who’s not that into sport at school, that doesn’t mean they can’t be active at home. There are even ideas for tech-heads. Discover more on the links below. If you have any concerns on exercising with your children, remember to check with your doctor (or your Be Your Best nurse if you’re in the programme.)
