27% of adults not getting enough active minutes

JLT Sponsor bannerPeople are being urged to look at the amount of activity-time in their lives as part of a new campaign. The Get Going Campaign is being launched as part of the Change4Life initiative, and calls for adults to be more active everyday.

“Doing a little bit of physical activity each day offers huge benefits. That is why my UK colleagues and I recently updated the guidelines so they were more flexible for everyone,” says chief medical officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies. “Adults can now get their 150 active minutes a week in sessions of ten minutes or more. This can be from enjoyable everyday activites such as walking at a good pace or even digging in the garden.”

Health Minister Lord Howe adds: “I hope this new campaign encourages everyone to find new flexible ways of increasing their own activity levels.” More >

  1. Great article but please don’t forget us up in Scotland and across in Wales and Northern Ireland! The Get Going Campaign is only for those in England – you can’t get further tips unless you state you live there…and i’m in Scotland. So perhaps see if you can include similar ideas from across the borders!
