Physical Activity

Physical activity is extremely important to ensure you are able to lead a healthy and happy life, below are the Chief Medical Officers Guidelines, places for support and a poster explaining physical activity.

Physical Activity Guidelines for the UK :

Under-fives: 180 minutes - three hours - each day, once a child is able to walk.

Children and young people (5-18 year olds): 60 minutes and up to several hours every day of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity. Three days a week should include vigorous intensity activities that strengthen muscle and bone.

Adults (19-64 years old) and older people (65+): 150mins - two and half hours - each week of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity (and adults should aim to do some physical activity every day). Muscle strengthening activity should also be included twice a week.
