Healthy eating tips

Being active around the home

It can be difficult to fit a run, walk, or full workout into a busy day, but there are ways you can incorporate physical activity into your home routine!

Try a few of our examples below, and keep it fun by mixing them up as often as you like:

  • bodyweight squats while the kettle boils
  • stretch your arms and shoulders at your desk for a few minutes every hour
  • hold a wall sit while watching TV
  • alternate standing on each leg while brushing your teeth
  • put on the radio and dance!
