What activities can I try?

There are lots of different types of exercise and physical activity. The most important thing to consider, is finding something that you enjoy. Take a look at some of the great resources below to help you get started.

Ideas from the NHS:

  • Couch to 5k: This is a 9-week running programme designed for complete beginners by the NHS.
  • Gym-free workouts: Going to the gym isn't for everyone. Luckily, there are plenty of other ways to get active instead. The NHS have created routines that you can do anywhere, any time.

Complete your own activity with our resources:

  • Mindful walking: Sometimes it's good to stop and take notice of what is going on around you, and a mindful walk is a great way to do that. You can use this resource to help you complete your own.

You could also join one of Mind's Get Set to Go groups in your local area, link up with other people through our Elefriends online platform and find more activity ideas:
