If you're going outside to get fresh air and to get active, now more than ever is a time to explore locally. You can still exercise or visit outdoor public places with the people you live with, your support bubble, or 1 person from another household (you cannot meet in a private garden).
There has been a great deal of study into the benefits of green space on physical and mental well-being. Spending two hours per week, whether this is one visit or multiple visits to a green space, has a significant effect on good health and life satisfaction, and is true for almost every group both young and old, wealthy and poor, urban and rural people.
When you’re managing a health condition, being active is about finding what works for you, particularly when the way you feel can change from day to day.
