Stay In, Work Out

Exercise at Home

The Coronavirus outbreak is going to have an impact on everyone’s daily lives.

We are all having to spend a lot more time at home. This can affect how we feel both mentally and physically. Therefore, it has never been more important to look after both our physical and mental health.

Being active in a way that is right for you can not only improve your physical health. It can also help to manage stress and anxiety, and generally improve your mood and make you feel better.

Sport England has launched their Join the Movement campaign that supports people to get or stay active at home. The campaign includes lots of fun ideas, tips and suggestions on how to keep fit whilst at home. It uses the hashtag #StayInWorkOut to show people how they can get active. Sport England are also encouraging people to use the hashtag to share some of their own ideas.

It’s important to take care of your mind as well as your body during this time. Physical activity can help here, too. Everyone will react differently to what is happening. Changes to the way we feel, what we think and how we behave will vary from person to person and will change over time.

Public Health England has some advice on how you can look after your mental health and wellbeing during this time, and how to get further support. Find it here.
