People 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 >
