• Make small changes that build activity into your routine.
Pick times in your week where you can add more activity. It could be walking or cycling all or part of the way to work or the shops, taking the stairs instead of the lift, or taking your lunch break or calls on the move. It’s more likely to become a habit if you’re doing it in the same place at the same time.
• Set a goal and track your progress.
There’s evidence that monitoring how you’re getting on can help you keep up a change in the long term. There are a range of apps that can help you do this too – find what works best for you. Or why not make taking part in an organised event your goal?
• Buddy up with friends or family
Discover new ways to spend time getting active with the people around you, and you’ll find having others around is a great way to keep each other motivated.
