Since the lockdown began many people are finding they have become far less active, which can have a negative effect on both your physical health and mental wellbeing.
It’s particularly concerning for older people, who lose muscle condition and mobility rapidly, and often find it harder to be active when they can’t do their normal daily activities.
There’s lots of excellent digital resources available to support people to stay active and healthy at home, but many elderly people don’t use the internet.
Public Health England has developed a booklet to support older people and those who are shielded to be active and healthy at home by helping them find ways to build activity into their day.
It’s part of the Sport England Join the Movement campaign designed to provide inspiration and trusted information to the public about how to get active in and around the home during the coronavirus pandemic.
If you know someone who would benefit from reading this booklet, you could download it and print them a copy then pop it in the post or if they use the internet just send them a link.
