When you are managing a long term health condition, being active is about finding what works for you.
We understand that how you feel can change from day to day. And sometimes, that can make moving more feel like a challenge. It may be that being active has seemed like a big commitment or something that didn’t feel like it was for you. That’s perfectly okay.
The truth is that you can start small and you don’t have to get moving when you don’t feel up to it. Ultimately, being active is about finding what works for you. Doing something you actually like means you are far more likely to keep doing it. Try a few activities until you find the right thing for you.
Being active while having fun. Being active doesn’t have to feel serious or formal and it doesn’t have to feel like a chore. Any way you decide to get moving matters, whether it looks like traditional exercise or not. Even something like chasing after the grandkids or dancing around your kitchen with a friend can count as being active. Build activity into daily life
