What are the benefits of moving more?

Being physically active covers many different activities, from walking, to cycling, to playing a sport and everything in between and is essential in maintaining and improving our physical and mental health and wellbeing.

Taking any opportunity to move more in all aspects of your daily life, will all add up and lead to improvements in your physical and mental health and wellbeing. Being physically active can help you feel happier, less stressed, more energised and sleep better. It is also a great chance to socialise with friends and colleagues, have fun, be outdoors, have a break from the desk/office and take time for yourself.
