SPORT: Sport England’s Join the Movement campaign is giving people fun and creative ideas on how to get active at home and encourage them to share their own experiences and join the movement online.

You can share images of the creative ways you’re getting active at home using the tag #StayInWorkOut on social media channels, with the best efforts being shared by Sport England and even used in its campaign advertising!

At the campaign’s Stayinworkout.org website you will find a range of home workout options – including free exercise content and advice from organisations, such as the NHS, and workouts from popular fitness brands and influencers including Les Mills on Demand, Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) and FiiT, many of who offer free content and extended trials to help people get easy access.

It is just as important to look after our mental wellbeing as well as our physical health. Going for a brisk walk or a gentle jog is proven to help reduce stress and anxiety as well as having lots of benefits for your body but ensure that you only go out once a day.

Gardening can help tackle depression, stress and anxiety, and reduce high blood pressure, as well as improving your physical health, so it’s a great time to get outside and brighten up your patch. 

Don’t have a garden? You could try planting flowers in a window box, growing herbs indoors, or putting out food for the birds where you can watch them from a window.

Looking to the future, you could research walks you want to do, plan a new cycle route, or get the kids to make a list of five new activities they’d like to try.
