Moving into 2021, many of us are thinking about the things that we can do to improve our health.
Being more physically active is one of the most simple, cheap and effective ways to improve your physical and mental wellbeing. The evidence is there - it works at least as well as many of the treatments we prescribe for a number of conditions!
Let's make 2021 the year we all start to become more physically active. Perhaps it will be as simple as going for a walk or taking the stairs.
We want to celebrate what you all achieve - so let us know what you have managed, however small a step - you might just be the inspiration to others to get moving. In need of some motivational support or ideas? Our fantastic Active Health Link Workers can help. Get in touch on FB @ActiveHealthHighland or via firstname.lastname@example.org
Over the coming weeks, we will share some great examples of what you might be able to do...
