      It’s never too late to start being more active, whatever your age or ability – your body and mind will thank you for it. Not only can regular physical activity help lower the risk of many chronic diseases; it can also help reduce stress, anxiety and depression, as well as lower the risk of dementia. Best of all, it’s free and you can even build it into your day with every day activities if the gym’s not for you!

      To stay healthy, adults aged 19-64 should try to be active daily and should do at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity per week. This can range from cycling or brisk walking, to dancing, swimming or gardening.

      If you’re worried about how a health condition might affect your activity, why not ask one of our medical experts? Our Health at Hand nurses are available 24/7.
