“The 1 day Healthacate® Positive Ageing challenge is to do a 30 minute brisk walk TODAY”

The challenge resets itself everyday and therefore there is very little pressure or guilt about not meeting a challenge. Life is hectic for many of us so lets make “Positive Ageing” easy!

The NICE guidance is: to do 150 minutes of moderately vigorous activity a week. Moderately vigorous means that you get hot and sweaty but can just finish your sentences.  This equates to aerobic cardiovascular exercise and helps reduce the risk of diabetes, heart attacks and strokes and helps reduce obesity.

Split up into small chunks makes it much more doable hence the 1 day Healthacate®  Positive Ageing challenge!

I have also produced a printable no frills “Positive Ageing Checklist” have a look and see how well you are future proofing your physical and mental health. It covers all areas from preventing disease, engaging in screening programmes to concerns about cognitive health.



Resistance band exercises for positive ageing

Additional to the 150 minutes of moderately vigorous activity a week, it is proposed you should also do exercise’s that strengthen the core muscles and body.

Luckily in Worcestershire the council are providing resistance bands for free with an accompanying video on how to use them. These can be used for people lacking mobility at home or office workers needing a work out at lunch time.

The great thing is resistance bands can be adjusted to suit the level of activity required!
