Physical Activity Recommendations
It is recommended that an adult does 150 minutes of moderate physical activity a week, but what is Moderate Activity? – This can be any activity that will raise your heart rate, and make you breathe faster and feel warmer.
Examples include a brisk walk, gardening or housework.
150 Minutes may seem daunting right now, but with the right support, plan of action and goals – you would be surprised how quickly this can top up.
