Keeping Active

Keeping active is essential to maintain good physical and mental health. Movement helps pump oxygen to our brains, helps our lymphatic system get rid of toxins and releases pressure on our immune system.

With more of us working from home, it’s important to make sure you stay active during the day. Sitting for long periods is thought to slow the metabolism, which affects the body's ability to regulate blood sugar, blood pressure and break down body fat.

If you can try to get outside for a walk then do, alternatively there are many online fitness videos and streamed classes you can join in with.

Kent Sport also have an excellent range of links to resources that you can access which you'll find listed below.
