Keeping active - coronavirus

We recognise these are challenging times at the moment, however it is really important for your mental and physical wellbeing to keep active during the next few months.

There are lots of ways to do this safely if you are self-isolating, and there are a lot of resources online which are free to use.

Sport England has information on how to stay active while you are at home, including the following:

  • Exercising at home
  • If you’re older
  • Online home workouts
  • Other gym workouts
  • With the kids
  • Getting outdoors

There is also a huge range of online workouts which you can find doing a simple search on Google or Youtube, for varying lengths, activity types and abilities. For example, Yoga with Adriene is a popular yoga channel which offers over 500 free yoga videos which you can do at home.

For local ideas on how to be active and a ‘Social Distancing Timetable’ visit the Active and Inclusive Swindon website.

Getting outdoors and into nature can be really beneficial for your physical and mental wellbeing. Visit the Getting Outdoors page for more information on local parks and open spaces.
