Healthy Day

Yoga for Health

World Physical Activity Day is on April 6th, 2012. In fact many organisations around the world will be promoting physical activity and exercise throughout that whole week. How are YOU planning to help people and patients get more active, and start regularly exercising to healthier lifestyles and health outcomes?
In terms of really making a difference to peoples activity levels and health outcomes, we have found that using Twitter and Facebook are some of THE most important behaviour change tools!
We are aiming to get #getactive trending on Twitter for 6th April. So everyone please use the #getactive hashtag! Together we can make a difference to the way people and families think about exercise as a vital medicine and a great, fun way to improve their health. We are already changing the way large health organisations such as the NHS view exercise as part of every patients care pathway. We are also changing the way patients see exercise support to be THE best advice from their doctors!
  • Enjoy, regular moderate exercise, especially walking, for 30 minutes,on at least 5 days of the week. Try strength, stretching, flexibility and balance exercise twice a week. Exercise is fun and social, so choose activities that you enjoy and make you feel good!
  • On 6th April, you could organise an exercise #flashmob in your local communities or work place. Exercise is fun, and an exercise flash mob helps people get together to share in the fun, and healthy outcomes!
Exercise Works!
