Being active

The Change4Life campaign provides a host of useful information on ways in which you can improve your own health and the health of your family. Taking half an hour to play with the kids is a free, fun way of being active. Dig out the frisbee, ball or skipping rope and head off to your local park or open space to have a laugh – you’ll feel great!
