Be Physically Active

We believe being active is not only great for your physical health and fitness it also has great advantages in improving your mental wellbeing by raising your self-esteem, helping you to set goals or challenges and achieve them and causing chemical changes in your brain which can help to positively change your mood.

Here are some of the ways in which we help carers to be more active:

  • Yoga for Carers
  • Monday ramble Club
  • Gardening Club
  • Open University Physical Activities for health and wellbeing in the caring role
  • Cultural Dance Classes
  • Meditation
  • Swimming

Being physically active can improve your brain health, help manage weight, reduce the risk of disease, strengthen bones and muscles, and improve your ability to do everyday activities. Carers who sit less and do any amount of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity gain improved health benefits.
