Day 11 – Get moving 

We are over half way! Plain sailing from here on in. If you have managed to keep up so far, the odds are with you for doing this. Go you!!
Today is about getting moving. However much you are moving, let’s look at increasing that. It is shown that 30 minutes to 1.5 hours of exercise, 2/3 times a week, not only improves our physical health, but our mental health too. Here’s the good news, for me at least, any more than that and it has a negative effect, which is a great excuse not to overdo it.
What works for you? The gym isn’t for everybody, much as country walks aren’t for others. Find what works for you, get curious, explore, try. I gave yoga a go & found it hilarious, then gave Pilates a go and found it just right for me.
You can count your steps with many pedometers on the market, or free apps on your phone, you can set step challenges with friends.
If you have a Fitbit, you can find Jeanette, add as a friend and set challenges.

Step it up – optional extra
Give something new a go today, or at least book it in your diary.
