There are lots of tips and tricks to build activity into your daily routine – take the stairs, have a standing meeting, walk around while doing your teeth. Little things can build up into 30 minutes. Your 30 minutes, your way! Try 10 minutes before work, 10 minutes in your lunch break and 10 minutes after work. Adults in England should aim to take part in at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity each week, according to the recommended physical activity guidelines for adults from the UK Chief Medical Officers. So start slowly, with just 10 minutes, and build up to 30 minutes. Walking briskly for 10 minutes counts as exercise. Download the Active 10 walking tracker app to track your progress.
