Get Active in Lockdown - 30 Ways in 30 Days

Man stretching upwards on bed, text reads 'Text 30 ways to 82228'

In the last lockdown we had beautiful sunny skies to tempt us all to go and enjoy the great outdoors. This time it’s a little different with dark evenings, and many of us stuck indoors working from home, on extended furlough or looking for work.

That’s why we’re launching an activity challenge to help you get motivated and stay that way for the next month.

Called ’30 ways in 30 days’ the plan aims to help people who haven’t exercised for a while and perhaps find the thought of doing any exercise a bit daunting.

With tasks such as going for a walk or doing chair-based exercises this plan creates simple, easy ways for people to keep, taking small steps towards getting that little bit healthier.

We’ve made sure all our exercises are safe to do indoors or within the lockdown guidelines. Please remember that you can only exercise indoors with someone from your household or support bubble and meet one person at a social distance outdoors.

We'll be sharing some easy ideas for ways to be active each day from as little as ten minutes a day, as well as some ways to keep motivated and on track.

You can do the activities at home on your own, or with another member of your household as part of our buddy workout. And we've got guided videos for short routines you can do at home where all you'll need is a chair and a couple of tins of food.

You can sign up by texting “30ways” to 82228 and by doing so you will receive a text every other day for the 30 days with prompts to head back to the website and motivational tips. All of the texts you receive are free.
