Walk wherever you can
Walking may be underrated, but it’s one of the easiest ways to get active and become healthier. Try to ditch the car and walk to the shops or incorporate it into your journey to work.10,000 steps can burn up to 400 calories.
You can get the heart pumping by doing an exercise routine in your own living room – start off with 10-minute work outs and work your way up!
Make the most of the Summer and Autumn months by reliving your childhood and spending time in the park. You could organise a game of rounders with friends and family.
