Time to get active to better our mental health
When we are stressed, anxious or depressed. The last thing we usually feel like doing is exercise.
When the basics in life feel like the most insurmountable challenge. Brushing your teeth. Having a shower. Making something to eat. Being active is difficult. You don’t need to run a marathon. You don’t need to hit the gym or sign up to an expensive dance class. You can aim to take a short walk to be active.
This January, challenge yourself to get active every day, your way.
Whether you run, swim, cycle or choose your favourite fitness activity, set your goal and enjoy support from the RED community every step, splash and pedal of the way!
Kick-start your 2020 in a positive way and raise funds for National Mind so together we can be active for better mental health.
If you’d like to directly impact your local community, you can see the list of local Mind’s we’re working in partnership with on our website.

I have always been inactive for lengthy periods of time due to having asthma. Flu, colds are all doing the rounds at the moment. Most of my Facebook over New Year was full of sad faces seeing in the New Year on the sofa feeling poorly. Imagine that with asthma. You won’t be running up that hill any time soon. However, months of inactivity does have a detrimental effect on your mental health. It’s important to keep going.
